Let's extend our thanks to the spook who outed Bush.
Three Cheers and Thanks to the Leaker
Over the last year, someone leaked to the New York Times the fact that George
W. Bush illegally ordered the NSA to violate our rights and the law by
authorizing wiretaps of US citizens without a court warrant. Bush does not
have the authority to authorize such an operation, therefore, the NSA should
have refused to follow his orders. Whoever leaked this story knew that
Bush and the NSA were violating the Constitution and U.S. law. Whoever
leaked this story knew that Bush and the employees of the NSA conducting the
surveillance were violating their oaths to "support and defend the
Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Since the
illegal program was classified, we must assume that the source of the leak had a
security clearance and, therefore, chose fidelity to the oath over fidelity to
his or her employer. Such a person is what we call a whistleblower.
I would like to personally express my gratitude to this person and all upon all
Americans to join me in designing him or her a hero.
As must bullies do, George W. Bush is pointing the finger of accusation at
the whistleblower, accusing this heroic individual of what can only be described
as treason, and has moved the Department of "Justice" to open an
investigation into the source of the leak. While Congress should be
demanding the resignation of this half wit traitor occupying the White House,
they instead join in the call to tar and feather the hero who followed his or
oath. I suppose that if the leader is a traitor, treason becomes the
patriotism of the day. I for one reject this nonsense. If the polls
we have recently seen online are any indication, the vast majority of Americans
reject Bush's bully politics and criminality too.
This country has never before seen such overwhelming support from the people
themselves to impeach a President. Never before has a president openly
admitted to violating the law and then turned around and confirmed that he would
continue to do so unabated. Yet, despite this, our Congress is almost
silent while a traitor pisses on the Constitution right before our eyes.
Shame on the U.S. Congress!
I don't know where all of this will go. I don't know if we will all sit
and watch like cowards as an absolutist fascist pigs oinks his way over our
rights. What I do know is that some unknown person had the integrity to
expose our treasonous President and to that person I say "Thanks, keep up
the good work!"
