    She is and was a tool for the Bushies in the fear mongering state.

    She is not our friend, yours maybe.

      right over the reference to Judith Miller, but you are accurate, Judith Miller played an instrumental role in driving up fear and garnering support for what I still consider an illegal and unnecessary war...  She served as a tool of the goals of an administration determined to press on with their agenda of war, although at the time there were others in media doing the same...

      •  Well isn't that what you are doing? (1+ / 0-)

        You are driving up fear by predicting the probability of a very unlikely situation.

        So you win the lefts Judith Miller award. We could be doomed. ANd it's really scary if...... our country was just like Egypt.

          The USA already has given the president extraordinary powers, wartime emergency powers.  The specific bill of Lieberman would demand new media and its applications and infrastructure like ISP's and cable/media organizations/sites   would have to comply with a suspension of First Amendment rights at the behest of the White House.

          Your complacency and denial is right on target.

          Keep going.  Claim this is fearmongerng, nothing to worry about.

          You don't do anything but make excuses and apologies for handing over your own civil liberties. The award?

          You should keep it, miss, you are earning it for your dogged persistence here
