Strong support for NSA Surveillance

New Poll shows support for NSA surveillance.

"WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 (Reuters) - More than half of Americans approve of the White House's domestic eavesdropping program to fight terrorism, but nearly two-thirds worry that Americans' civil liberties could be threatened by U.S. antiterrorism programs, according to a New York Times/CBS News Poll.

The poll, published in Friday's New York Times, found Americans were more accepting of the surveillance program if they believed it was intended to protect them.

Fifty-three percent of those surveyed said they approved of President George W. Bush's decision to authorize eavesdropping without prior court approval "in order to reduce the threat of terrorism," The Times reported."


Again, the President didn't authorize anything that any other President didn't authorize in a time a war. The problem is that the rabid socialist antiwar left dosen't believe we are at war - thinks 9/11 was an isolated incident or at worst a Bush/Cheney/Neocon conspiracy - and thus will do everything to sap our security so long as they can "get Bush". Sad.

But to intelligent people who know that we are -as President Bush has consistantly said - in a long protracted struggle against a non-traditional but nonetheless radical murderous enemy, they know that extreme times need extreme measures to insure the safey of our Nation.

When people sit down and think about it, look at their families and their safety, they agree. Do what it takes.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
