Maybe it's just me but after reading this article and the usual carefully selected words, exchanging "eaves drop" or "spy" for "security tools"
to keep America Safe. I find a rather disgusting manipulation being used here to extort or blackmale Congress into aiding and abetting a crime.
It is clear that this was done illegally and from what I understand, the telecoms were reluctant to go along with this but BushT assured them this was
for National Security and most likely made some promises he thought at the time he could keep. Now there are approximately 40 law suits pending
against the telecoms for breaking the law. They knew it was illegal and so did BushT. Now he is under pressure to get this out of the way before the
trials begin and he has all the telecoms getting angry if he reneges on his assurances for any legal ramifications resulting from this.
We know BushT got himself retroactive immunity last week with the bill they signed covering his ass all the way back to 911/2001 HOWEVER,. once
subpoenas are sent along with deuces tecum, this will open the door for "discovery" where I think it may exploit BushT for any promises made that
may be an abuse of power. So that may be why he is so motivated to keep this from going to discovery in a class action suit.
Now here is where this gets sickening, you read the article and it is given importance and status as integral to Americans safety and security, (keep
that in mind.) Now it is given urgency with an early threat that if the addendum isn't returned with the ass saving grace of a congress, Busht is
requesting they relinquish there obligations for the rule of law and oversight or else. The "or else" being the threat of the Veto.
It is disingenuous if not outright cowardice of BushT to use this as a Security measure for the American people yet he is quite willing to put himself
and his cronies first at the risk of those same Americans security if Congress calls his Bluff.
He will just say,, OK then if you aren't going to help me get away with another felony, then Ill veto this or that and the American People are
without this "so called" protection.
What a self serving, lobby licking, piece of Garbage.
Not only is this blatantly abusing his power of office if Congress capitulates under duress but it is so indicative of his "ME First", "what about
me" mentality. I imagine BushT would have been wearing a dress on the day the titanic sunk and would have tossed woman and children over the side to
make room for his own ass in a life boat.
I mean he is looking like that much,,
