"WASHINGTON, Feb. 16 — The Senate Intelligence Committee decided today not to investigate President Bush's domestic surveillance program, at least for the time being.
"I believe that such an investigation is currently unwarranted and would be detrimental to this highly classified program," Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas and chairman of the panel, said this afternoon following a closed session.
While Mr. Roberts's announcement signaled that the administration's eavesdropping program would not be subject to Senate scrutiny, at least for the time being, there was no guarantee that the House would not go ahead with an inquiry of its own.
Mr. Roberts said "an agreement in principle" had been reached with the administration whereby lawmakers would be given more information on the surveillance operation run by the National Security Agency.
"The details of this agreement will take some time to work out," Mr. Roberts said.But the committee's ranking Democrat, John D. Rockefeller IV of West Virginia, was clearly unhappy after the meeting and said it made no sense to pursue legislation when the full details of the surveillance program were not known. Mr. Roberts said Mr. Rockefeller's proposal for an investigation would be reconsidered when the committee reconvenes on March 7."
You know, Al Qaeda operatives world wide have to be laughing their asses off at the US these days. While their brethren rioting world-wide over fake cartoons - killing at this point more than twenty people in the process. While China is preparing for war (believe it), and Russian is once again feeling their oates. While we have a hundred and one things - very dangerous things taking place in the world around us, the American MSM is stuck on Pellet-Gate, and making a MOUNTAIN of SIN over a hill of beans in the NSA issue.
Again, the NSA is NOT spying on Americans. In fact to this date there hasn't been ONE documented occurance of someone's so-called right to privacy. I say so-called because whether or not you have that right is questionable. You have NO right to privacy if you're talking with your terrorist slug buddies and planning to kill Americans. Like it or not or believe it or not, the program and all the other programs the Administration is using has kept us from getting re-attacked. Quite frankly the MSM I believe would rather have it the other way around. You know, "If it bleeds it leads". Pretty much the MSM would just as well enjoy another 9/11 just so they can stand there and beat their collective chests and say, "See? We told you so!"
Told us what? That you would turn away and ignore tyranny just to keep an office open? That you would sell out your own Country just to make a buck?
Basically the only thing the MSM has told us - and our enemies as well - lately is our secrets. Devulging our classified war plans "book sales", and "Breaking Stories".
We live in a dangerous time of delusion. No, not from the Bush Administration, but from the MSM themselves. They are the Orwellian spector, creating the world as THEY see it. This last week they signaled the final nails in their coffin of relevance. Simply put they showed their collective asses and the American public will not forgive or forget it.
