A resident of Idaho was stopped and treated like a terrorist because he had a Moslem-sounding name. We invaded Iraq on trumped up claims because right-wing leaders needed to get that long-dreamed thing done. We tapped innocent citizens phones with no court permission. We tortured prisoners. We had Osama bin Laden trapped in Torah Borah and let him get away...personally I think that George W. Bush had something to do with this because his family made its fortune off of the Saudi family by illegally trading with Nazi Germany. The same with arresting American citizens after the 9/11 tragedy and yet allowing ONLY Saudi citizens in the U.S. to fly out of the country. Remember, bin Laden is a Saudi and made his wealth under the Saudi umbrella...and so did Prescott Bush!
John Ashcroft will now be charged in court by a citizen of Idaho for treating the American illegally. How in the world John Ashcroft ever became Attorney General of the U.S. strains my belief apparatus. And Senators like the "liberal" Senator Russ Feingold, who sat in the Senate chamber with Ashcroft for years, could bring themselves to vote to approve the nomination of Ashcroft for Attorney General strains my rationality. To meet John Ashcroft is to instantly realize he has a screw missing. And his extreme right-wing religious beliefs are truly zany. He immediately insisted on covering up the naked statues in a government building. He must certainly think that the statue of David is profane. The voters in Missouri came to recognize the goofy thinking and actions of U.S. Senator John Ashcroft, and swiftly voted him out of office. George W. Bush picked up the strange pieces of rubbish and nominated him for Attorney General. Imagine, the most powerful nation in the world being run by John Ashcroft, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and George W. Bush. Imagine!
I commend the current Attorney General for exposing some of the horribly undemocratic and illegal actions by Dick Cheney and the CIA. Go after these thugs! If the CIA was only following orders, then go after the person or persons issuing those orders ...or those whose convaluted mind twisted things so the torture and illegal searches could take place. Go after them!
Slowly but surely we are coming to realize that the years of George W. Bush's presidency were years in which the very fabric of American democracy was put at risk. Go after them!
