In modern warfare information is king. In the terrorism war between loosely coupled, suicidal fanatics and normal citizens information is still king – but the terrorists and their sock puppets can use our laws and courts to take out our defenses. In modern war they do not need bombs. The obvious example of this was that naive and partisan judge who wrote a pathetic ‘legal decision’ in an attempt to shutdown the military’s eavesdropping on terrorists.
Side Note: get this straight folks on the leftward fever swamps – the NSA is a military unit, it does not do law enforcement and does not work for DoJ or the courts. Alberto Gonzales can go to FISA all day long and it means nothing to the NSA. The NSA monitors our enemies overseas at the direction of the Commander In Chief. If the FBI wants to do something with the leads NSA finds on possible terrorists here, then that is what they do. And they go through FISA to do so. – Prove otherwise. Now back to the post.
In this new battlefield (some on the left are so wrapped up in their fantasies they have no clue a battle is raging) our defenses are under attack by those who at best could be considered useful idiots, and at worst false comrades. Take the ACLU, now fighting for the terrorists in 20 states:
As I stated above, if anyone in this country is the TARGET of surveillance then they are probably under a FISA warrant. The only way to get on the NSA’s radar is to communicate with a known terrorist overseas, and then only those conversations are probably monitored (given the 72 hour grace period provided by law). What the ACLU is doing is not for protecting anyone, they want the details of the program out so terrorist will know how to circumvent the NSA. And it is possible (and, sadly, probably too easy) to circumvent. The ACLU will claim they want the details out to educate America about the evil George Bushitler. But exposing it to some exposes it too all. Which is why we cannot trust or worry about the obsessive lefties who will do anything to win votes in November. And in fact, I suggest we remove the ACLU from the taxpayer funds – it has been a long time coming.
