  • Bush Administration not interested in legalities of detention
  • Brian Cloughley – It’s not going well in Afghanistan
  • The spying started before 9/11
  • Testimony of Vincent Bugliosi before Congress, July 26, 2008
  • There is evidence that electronic surveillance was being conducted on the American people by the Bush administration from its early days in office months before 9/11 and ‘The War on Terror’.

    There is a reasonable amount of circumstantial evidence that suggests the Bush Administration may have allowed bin Laden and al Qaeda’s leadership to escape from Tora Bora in Afghanistan in December 2001 so that ‘The War on Terror’, rather than ending with the quick and stunning victory that was within our grasp, would be prolonged into ‘The Long War’ our Founding Fathers warned us about.

    Evidence is accumulating that the Bush administration doctored the evidence it supplied Congress during the run up to the 2003 Iraq War.

    America is currently in the most serious constitutional crises since its foundation, a fact that seems to be flying right over the heads of many American people and most of Congress.  How long before American Patriots demand Congress undertake its responsibilities.

    GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

    “I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”

    “Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”

    “Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

    I have talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a goddamned piece of paper.”

    And, to the Bush Administration, the Constitution of the United States is little more than toilet paper stained from all the shit that this group of power-mad despots have dumped on the freedoms that “goddamned piece of paper” used to guarantee. Doug Thompson

    I even hesitated to post this today, because Thompson is frequently an unreliable source of information, but something like this needs to be investigated and verified or refuted. (Such as his claim, in the very same post, that Alberto Gonzales said the Constitution was an outdated document. He actually said the Geneva Convention was outdated.
