In the wake of the exposure of the criminal activity of the Bush administration, some right-wing nut jobs have chosen this talking point
to hold onto like some kind of deck chair bobbing in the flotsam of a sunken ship. "What we do know is that we have not suffered another attack on the Homeland since 9/11. That is a miraculous fact. And President Bush should be applauded for protecting the country rather than excoriated, to say nothing of impeachment which is on the lips of some Democrats."
This is idiotic on two levels:
1) This is who they were spying on:
"Pentagon officials have been spying on what they call "suspicious" meetings by civilian groups, including student groups opposed to the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on lesbian, gay and bisexual military personnel." Special note for the clueless: This is an example of Bush's upsidedown priorities.
2) We all know that if the Bush Administration had "foiled" any terror plot they would have blown every covert op protocol to announce it on Fox News
. They would have. We know this because they have blown the cover of field agents for less political mileage.
Yesterday I was against impeachment, despite what you may have imagined. Today, I'm not so sure.
