Senators From Hell

First We Have John McCain’s “Al-Qaeda Bill Of Rights,” now President Bush has to do this because lawmakers are now seeking to put our nation in danger of sequels to 9/11.

President Bush, at the White House yesterday, calls for renewing the anti-terror act because “we cannot afford to be without this law for a single moment.”
President Bush yesterday blasted senators using a filibuster to block renewal of the Patriot Act, calling the move irresponsible and saying it puts American lives at risk.

Are these people nuts?

“In the war on terror, we cannot afford to be without this law for a single moment,” Bush said in a rare live version of his weekly radio address.

He demanded full reauthorization of the act, parts of which are set to expire within two weeks.

“The terrorist threat to our country will not expire in two weeks,” Bush said. “The terrorists want to attack America again and inflict even greater damage than they did on September the 11th.”

These suicidal, stupid effin’ anti-Bush vote-chasers U.S. Senators are thinking through organs other than those inside their craniums.

Bush also took aim at leaks that have exposed a secret National Security Agency eavesdropping program that he authorized after the 9/11 attacks.

“Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies and endangers our country,” he said.

A report about the domestic spying appeared in Friday’s New York Times. Bush described the program as narrowly designed and called its use “consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution.”

He added that it had only been used to intercept international communications of people inside the United States determined to have “a clear link” to al Qaeda or related terrorist organizations.

“This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security,” he insisted.

The program is reviewed every 45 days, using fresh threat assessments, legal reviews by the Justice Department, White House counsel and others and information previously obtained under the program, he added.

It’s good to know{NOT!} that these boneheads elected U.S. officials at least have some soul mates(cell mates would be better, I mean treason is still illegal, isn’t it?) over at the New York Times, in terms of irresponsible journalists who’ll publish anything they believe might hurt the administration without first looking thoroughly at the legalities, pretending as though members of al-Qaeda don’t also read the newspapers.

If there really is a quagmire anywhere in the War On Terror, it’s located on Capital Hill.
