I Know, Everybody Everywhere Is All Over This, But...

Yeah, the Florida thing. This morning's smirky, oh-boy-is-this-gonna-boost-Our-Leader's-approval-ratings press conference brings to mind several points:

A. These guys had criminal records, and needed help buying boots. Not exactly Mensa material. It's doubtful they would have successfully pulled anything off. But anyway...

B. These guys allegedly tried to solicit assistance in committing murder and acts of terrorism. These are serious crimes that could have had them put away for a very, very long time even prior to 9/11 -- the USA PATRIOT Act was completely unnecessary.

C. These guys were caught by the FBI operating through normal channels, with the assistance of local law enforcement and vigilant neighbors. Had the NSA's warrantless communications monitoring been instrumental, we never would have heard the end of it. "Wiretapping" would have been every other word coming out of the AG's mouth. And no one was tortured, no one sent to Uzbekistan or Camp X-Ray.

I mean, honestly: a normal investigation with judicial oversight, and no busting out of eardrums with a high-pressure water hose? Not even one chemical lightstick shoved up one, single, solitary rectum?

It's almost as if these guys don't know how to fight terrorism at all...

Rick Santorum's WE FOUND THE WMD!!! hoo-hah is another apple in the barrel...expect many more laughs in the future. The next five months are going to be fun.

The politics in this country passed farcical a long time ago. Who was it said, "you can't underestimate the intelligence of the electorate"?
Now the gov't bulls are trying to prove how nice they are.
I'm just a grump today.

The administration's reaction sort of reminds me of the departed Spanish government's attempt to blame the Madrid bombings on the ETA.

Had the NSA's warrantless communications monitoring been instrumental, we never would have heard the end of it.

Exactly - this whole Florida media blitz is most remarkable for what Bush et al. are not asserting. If there were any way they could contrive an argument that the Patriot Act, NSA wiretaps or torture helped at all, you can bet they'd be doing just that. I can hear them now - "Patriot Act program related activities were crucial to this investigation..."

Teh, why do you hate teh Freedom?

I think this is an election stunt.

Totally didn't read it. Just wanted to say "Hi buddy"

Not even one chemical lightstick shoved up one, single, solitary rectum?

Happy belated gay pride! Woot!
