    That's how it all came out in the first place ... James Risen had multiple NSA whistleblowers come to him.

    But what good does it do if you shut down the investigation by denying clearances? This is totally fucked up. This really seems to me to reek of naked obstruction of justice.

    That the DOJ wouldn't have ... say ... two people with clearances high enough to view this material is totally unbelievable. Or shows poor hiring in the DOJ, if Bush wants to argue that route.

      the Bush cabal expects it to simply go away.  They have shut down the Democrats multiple times already by threatening a rush of the right-wing base to the polls.  They saw the dem institution leave Feingold out to dry.

      Something has got to give.

      •  Substance? How about this - (0+ / 0-)

        If the President's 'unchecked' power to wage war without legislative approval is the root cause of defacto martial law in this country, then the constitution must be changed to REQUIRE A VOTE OF THE PEOPLE'S REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS, for the administration to conduct military operations anywhere anytime?

          ...and they ingnore it anyway?  There is a friggin grocery list of stuff that should be addressed.  
          I did not like line item signing when Clinton did it, I like it less not that we have a pseudo Hitler in charge.  That process needs to go.  Paper ballots should be mandatory.  I could write a list that would consume the day so I will stop.  Right now I am enjoying all the wingnuts cluster like a bunch of chimps on TV trying to spin BushCo's transgretions as "legal," "needed," and oh yes, dozens of different ways to say liberals just don't realize it yet.  Paternalistic government is the new Republican way.  Well my marginally bi-pedal friends, here is a middle of the road Democrat who will think for himself...thank you very much anyway.
          What I "need" is to get my country back and see the little monsters responsible for this to face the court system.
