Bush to Media Muppets and Moral Morons: "My Worthy Opponents May Micturate Up a Thick Coil of Woven Hemp"


Yesterday the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports, after being improperly provided to news organizations. As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have, and the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country.

As the 9/11 Commission pointed out, it was clear that terrorists inside the United States were communicating with terrorists abroad before the September the 11th attacks, and the commission criticized our nation's inability to uncover links between terrorists here at home and terrorists abroad. Two of the terrorist hijackers who flew a jet into the Pentagon, Nawaf al Hamzi and Khalid al Mihdhar, communicated while they were in the United States to other members of al Qaeda who were overseas. But we didn't know they were here, until it was too late.

The authorization I gave the National Security Agency after September the 11th helped address that problem in a way that is fully consistent with my constitutional responsibilities and authorities. The activities I have authorized make it more likely that killers like these 9/11 hijackers will be identified and located in time. And the activities conducted under this authorization have helped detect and prevent possible terrorist attacks in the United States and abroad.

This is a heartening tone and the statement is made stronger since it is based, as so many things in the quisling media is not, on facts.

Reaction among the bad Americans in the political class was swift and predictable with one notable drooler spewing the phrase "King George Bush." One is tempted to ask what part of the title "Commander in Chief" that particular idiot failed to understand but since ambition is his first and second language the answer is "all of it."

In general, the revelation of the program with the all too tedious play it has been given in order to hump some New York Times scribblers latest forgettable tome in the bookstores is one with the flatulent and ceaseless debate over "torture." Just the irritating background buzz of those who are out of power and rightly so.

The problem with the Liberal Left, the Devolved Democrats, and the Morally Stripmined Media is that when it comes to the phrase, "All's fair in love and war," their "philosophy" won't let them take that thought beyond the word "love." They're the experts when it comes to making all love fair but cannot understand the necessities of war. That's why they should be left alone to run the condom programs while the grown-ups run the army. Indeed, if they keep behaving and speaking as they do, the country will probably see to that over the next few election cycles.

In the meantime, I hope the slack-jawed members of the fifth estate will take careful note of the sentences "the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country, " and ask themselves if the Judith Miller incarceration earlier this year was an anomaly, or if she was just warming up the cells.

Are you sure you want to support the contention that, prior to the NYT's story, Al-Qaeda had no idea that their telephone and email communications with co-conspirators in the US were subject to interception? And now that they know, we are suddenly at greater risk?
