TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Presidential adviser Karl Rove criticized a federal judge's prder for an immediate end to the government's warrantless surveillance program, saying Wednesday such a program might have prevented the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.Utterly neglecting to mention the PDB of August 6, 2001 which specifically warned that Al Qaeda was planning to strike the USofA inside the country soon.
Rove said the government should be free to listen if al Qaeda is calling someone within the U.S. "Imagine if we could have done that before 9/11. It might have been a different outcome," he said.Jeezis fucking christ, these shitwhistles have no shame, no memory, nothing but wholesale mendacity, fear-mongering, and deceit? These lying bastards had all the evidence, all the intelligence they would ever have needed, to prevent the attacks on IXXI, if they had wanted to pay attention to it. But Condaliarza Rice, the National Fucking Security Advisor, claimed the PDB and associated evidence supporting the warnting were considered merely "historical."
U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit last week became the first judge to strike down the National Security Agency's program, ruling it unconstitutional. (Full story)Judge Taylor's opinion has been subjected to furious attacks from the right-wing shitheels who's responsibility it was to prevent both the attacks and the over-stepping of the Constitution in their zeal (ex post facto) to see them remedied by reducing the rights of the citizenry.
Rove's comments came as he headlined a fundraiser for Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, who is running for governor. About 50 protesters stood outside the country club where the fundraiser was held, some with signs that said "Impeach Bush."Blackwell, of course, was the Ohio Secretary of State (and Bushevik campaign manager in the State) whose efforts to restrict the vote by possible Democratic partisans, to corrupt the franchise with the assistance of Diebold, and to steal the state for Bush, are now being so richly repaid, as he runs for Governor.
Jeezis fuck I hate these people.
