Aw! Poor Vize Resident Cheney. Seems he's all mad and pouty-mouthed at some newspapers...Oh, yes. Seems both the LA Times and NY Times did pieces that exposes The Shlub Regime's illegality one more time, this time, why, studying bank transfer records, and without warrants, as if we couldn't guess!
His scam is now public record, and oh, is he in a heck of a tizzy about it!
"What I find most disturbing about these stories is the fact that some of the news media take it upon themselves to disclose vital national security programs, thereby making it more difficult for us to prevent future attacks against the American people," Mr. Cheney said, in impromptu remarks at a fund-raising luncheon for a Republican Congressional candidate in Chicago. "That offends me."
Minor problem there, Quickdraw: You and your drinking pal do it without warrants. And to make bad matters worse? Now you idiots are spying off-shore! Oh, shucks!
"Our data has been effectively hijacked by the U.S. under cover of secret agreements and entirely undisclosed terms," said the civil liberties advocate, Simon Davies, the director of Privacy International, a London-based organization focused on the intrusion on privacy by governments and businesses. "There will be a snapping point, and this may be it."
It's okay, Simon, Cheney doesn't care, never did, never will. It's all about oil and making the PNAC masturbation fantasy all real in our lifetimes.
The executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, Anthony D. Romero, condemned the program, calling it "another example of the Bush administration's abuse of power."
Abuse of power. That's the nice way of saying we have paranoid incompetent idiots running things, and with no safeguards or other mechanisms to reign them in, naturally.
Of course, the assorted freepers, the neocons, the Christofascists, yes, oh, they're now on a campaign to compare the likes of both papers to being in bed with Al Qaeda. (No, it's my own policy, I do my best not to link to those whose webpages contain obscene and smutty materials, thank you..)
No doubt, their fax machines are at warp power, with cute ideas from The Politburo, aiming to Swiftboat both Times. And for what?
Exposing the truth, of which, these days, there is so damned little of. Again, the Bush Regime is caught hand-in-cookie-jar, taking yet another bowel movement all over our civil rights.
And Cheney's angry? Excellente!
