Michael "Rubber Stamp" Castle Stays Quiet on Bush's Abuse of Power

Update Via Think Progress:

CongressDaily reports that former NSA staffer Russell Tice will testify to the Senate Armed Services Committee next week that not only do employees at the agency believe the activities they are being asked to perform are unlawful, but that what has been disclosed so far is only the tip of the iceberg. Tice will tell Congress that former NSA head Gen. Michael Hayden, Bush’s nominee to be the next CIA director, oversaw more illegal activity that has yet to be disclosed:

[Tice] plans to tell Senate staffers next week that unlawful activity occurred at the agency under the supervision of Gen. Michael Hayden beyond what has been publicly reported, while hinting that it might have involved the illegal use of space-based satellites and systems to spy on U.S. citizens.

[Tice] said he plans to tell the committee staffers the NSA conducted illegal and unconstitutional surveillance of U.S. citizens while he was there with the knowledge of Hayden. … “I think the people I talk to next week are going to be shocked when I tell them what I have to tell them. It’s pretty hard to believe,” Tice said. “I hope that they’ll clean up the abuses and have some oversight into these programs, which doesn’t exist right now.” …

Where is Mike Castle's voice as Republicans are openly demanding answers from the President about the NSA phone database scandal? Silence=Consent. Castle knows who he works for, and it is not the people of Delaware. It is George W. Bush.

Until we hear otherwise, we have to assume that Michael Castle still believes George Bush should continue to be president.

Michael Castle in happier times, before he and Bush lost their mojo.

If someone proposed a commemorative coin that showed Bush wiping his ass with the Constitution, Castle would start paying attention.
I hope MC will understand this is NOT a rhetorical question - we want to know where he stands on NSA oversight, and what action he plans to take!!
Here is a link to an email form: Write a Rep.

Don;t hold your breath waiting for a response.
Castle had BETTER speak up on this.
Spivack is WAY out in front on this issue. I like his style - this bodes well for the campaign.
There will be more posts on this subject forthcoming. Maybe as soon as today if I get some time during my lunch hour.
Greets to the webmaster of this wonderful site! Keep up the good work. Thanks.
