NSA Updates...

Pajamas Media has got it covered with their NSA Files.


Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says "Monitoring the enemy is necessary and appropriate" today at Opinion Journal.

The Financial Times reports on how Gonzales will respond to questioning.


Stop the ACLU says "ACLU Welcomes Senate Inquiry Into Warrantless NSA Spying Program With Full Page Propaganda."
"It should get interesting today as one side accuses the administration of spying on innocent Americans without any evidence to back them up, and the other side defends what was supposed to be a secret program designed to defend us from the enemy. Why anyone should have to defend trying to spy on the enemy is just ridiculous to me.

Am I a Bush apologist? No, I haven’t heard any viable reason why he hasn’t secured our borders, and there are several other issues I have qualms with Bush about. However, listening in on the conversations of those talking to the people who want to kill us is not one of those issues. Constantly spinning this to compare it to what Nixon did is completely dishonest and has no evidence to back it up. These people are spies on our own soil, and in many cases admitted terrorists. I have seen no evidence that any innocent citizen has been harmed by this program, but I have seen evidence that it has captured admitted terrorists."

Atlas Shrugs says "I ask only that you read the following treasonous story void of prejudice and passion:" Hugh Hewitt
"The American Spectator's Jed Babbin was on John Batchelor's radio show yesterday, and stated that the intelligence community believes West Virignia Senator Jay Rockefeller is the leaker who illegally supplied the New York Times with the details of the NSA program.

Given that the CIA's Porter J. Goss stated emphatically that the leak had done very serious damage to the United States, if Rockefeller is a suspect, he should be hauled before a Grand Jury asap. When the crime was bribery (Abscam) no one protested that a sitting U.S. Senator ought not to be a target.

If the crime is much more serious --and this is-- purported good intentions should not shield the suspect.via instapundit

Has any member of the press asked Rockefeller point blank if he's the law breaker yet?"

It is important for America to see the severity, the gravity of these crimes against America. The left may hate Bush, blame Bush, but the Amerian people elected him. So it is the American people the left holds in contempt and wishes to deliver into dhimmitude - dar al islam.

Check this out: "Al Qaeda, not the FBI, is the greater threat to America" by Debra Burlingame


From Gary Bauer:
"If President Bush's much-maligned program to intercept communication from Al Qaeda suspects abroad to people in the U.S. had been in place before September 11th, the attacks may have been thwarted. That is what Debra Burlingame suggests in a Wall Street Journal column this morning. For those who may not recognize her name, Debra Burlingame is the sister of Charles F. "Chic" Burlingame III, pilot of American Airlines flight 77, which was crashed into the Pentagon on that horrible morning. I believe Debra Burlingame is right.

Two of the hijackers of flight 77 were Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al Hazmi. The two hijackers lived in San Diego and received more than a dozen phone calls from an Al Qaeda "switchboard" in Yemen. The National Security Agency (NSA) had the numbers being called in the U.S. but didn't intercept the calls because of fear the agency would be accused of domestic spying. "The rest is history."

By the way, in case you are wondering who Debra Burlingame's source is - it is none other than NBC. It aired a story in 2004 by senior correspondent Lisa Myers, who called the failure to intercept the calls one of the "missed opportunities that could have saved 3,000 lives." Today, NBC and all the networks call the same phone intercepts "domestic spying." So, according to "big media" the Bush Administration failed when it didn't intercept phone calls into the U.S. from known terrorists, and it is violating the Constitution now when it does intercept such calls."
