Bush gets his way: what excuses will be made? August 5, 2007

Posted by Al in : politics , trackback

Once again the rights and liberty of the American people have been invaded, from within, when their government voted to allow unlimited, and uncontrolled wiretapping of all their telephone calls, their emails and their browsing. In the end the President wanted to be able to monitor his subjects without any hindrance, and the rest of the government gave him this wish, all in the name of the fight against terror. The irony being that the majority of terrorist threats are phony, and the Bush administration is still riding on the back of the 9/11 attacks, which were staged by sections of the government to gain just this power.

What I like about this article is it’s a nice, reasoned argument about why the Democrats who voted for this law have probably shot themselves in the foot, providing that the American public actually sits up and takes notice. However, even if this doesn’t happen, you can rest assured that further Big Brother monitoring is not far in the future, both in the US and here in the UK. It might not even be safe to read this article in the future.
