It gets messier and messier, doesn’t it? While it may appear that I am gleeful about it, I am actually very sad that it has all come to this in our country. A horrendous war for reasons that shift with the wind, over 2000 US lives and God only knows how many Iraq citizens killed for no reason (and don’t even give me the “war on terra” BS), the Constitution ripped to shreds and all for what? Cindy Sheehan asked “for what noble cause did my son die?” and I suspect the true cause is indeed much, much less than noble.
In hindsight, I can see the wisdom of the Uni allowing him to remain preznit for four more years – had Kerry/Edwards taken the helm, much of the egegious actions of this administration would have gone undetected. So, let them reap what they have sown. Unfortunately, it’s at our expense but I have faith that it will work out with “justice for all”.
From a letter sent by Congresswoman Louise Slaughter:
The constitutional and legal questions by this secret domestic spying strike at the very heart of the foundation of our democratic ideals. These stories of undisclosed domestic spying and wiretaps – approved by the White House and carried out by our top law enforcement agencies without Congressional knowledge or judicial review – force citizens here and abroad to question our nation’s commitment to its own ideals. Unfortunately, we are all too numb to an Administration — which has already sullied our reputation abroad as the torch bearer of democracy, and a free, open, and tolerant nation — by authorizing secret prisons, planting propaganda, and fighting attempts to ban torture. However, this doesn’t mean we stay quiet.
