to: Sen. Patrick Leahy (D. of Vermont, my arboreal realm)
from: Department of Lost Causes, Jude of Panneus, Exec. Dir.:
We've all gotten more than a snoot-full the past couple weeks (not to mention administrations) of our unelected betters in high and secretive places and their jolly fat friends in Fairfax County, VA, the intelligence contractors. US governmental intelligence services are corrupted and disgusting; and the term for the contractors is "entomogenous parasites."
It's time, ladies and gentlemen, to convene a new Senate Select Committee to Study US Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, along the lines of the Church Committee of 1975.
The gentleman in position to convene such an investigation is Saint Patrick of Leahy, Chair of Senate Judiciary. It is necessary.
Change.org petition abstract follows, link below.
Sign it if you agree & pass it on. If not, well...don't.
"In the light of recent extremely disturbing public disclosures concerning intelligence gathering activities undertaken by U.S. governmental agencies in concert with numerous corporate contractors, at home and abroad, it is clear that the time has come for us, as citizens and elected representatives, to take a cold, hard look at the behavior and practices that have developed from that partnership.
We therefore urge you, Senator Leahy, as Chair of the Judiciary Committee, to convene a new Senate Select Committee to Study US Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, along the lines of the Church Committee of 1975."
