    Government opts for secrecy in wiretap suit

    Hopefully those who voted for The Prophet, weeping with enthusiasm and joy at the polling station, will step out of denial long enough to become pissed off. Am not holding my breath. Based on some UTube videos I have seen, Obi wan Kenobe could have used voice on them fairly easily. Which, to me, pretty much sums up today's situation nicely.

    Yet another example of why people should ignore what he says and pay attention to what he does. Talk is cheap; it's what you do that counts.

    The Obama admin is defending the actions Bush II admin here.

    Odd that

    Or..perhaps not so odd at all.

    Like I kept telling yas', anything that we let the Bush II admin get away with would become STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE for the administrations which follow.

    Or just maybe they would like time to review what was found to make sure that National Security would not be compramised by the release of that information. It was not the wiretaps that were objected to, it was the failure to obtain warrents so that there could be a semblence of oversight. This is exactly the same situation that we had with Nixon spying on internal "enemies" throught the use of Federal Agencies. Illegal then, illegal now. And, if we find on further investigation that Bush used the power as Nixon did, then Bush should face felony charges.

    Plusible, I suppose.

    But one does not need to release the TAPES themselves to release the information about the crime of wiretapping, does one?

    If the wiretaps were used as Nixon used them, then public release might jeoperdize the case against the felons. Even the fact that there were no warrants, no matter how justified the taping, is a criminal act.

    You know i never supported the chimptoid, I knew his 'patriot act' and all the rest of it had unreal potential for misuse.

    The lemmings voted for fear as they always do.
