Drudge has been flagging the latest NY Times scoop on the shocking abuses of power committed by ChimpyMcHalliburtonBushitler for a few hours, so naturally I have been waiting with bated breath for this breaking news.

Well the article is now up here .... hey, wait a minute -- I thought Drudge said it was in the NY Times, not the WaPo.

Must have been a bad keystroke...

Ahh, yes, here's the NY Times scoop. Front page, NY Times, byline Eric Lichtblau!

...Whoops, I must have entered the wrong date!?

Finally, here's what I was looking for all along. Eric Lichtblau's article. 2005! Wait... closer... but it's from July.

How can I find this NY Times scoop that Drudge is headlining?

I know!

I have stopped looking at Drudge. It was too Drdgey.

I always felt like I needed to put my fingers in my ears when I was reading it..like someone was screaming at me.

As for the topic..this is news to people?

“FBI agents monitored Web sites”

This complaint doesn't make the slightest sense to me. Why should the FBI be more restricted than ordinary citizens in accessing the Internet? Is there something I’m missing?

DT,

From the first link:

"It's one thing to monitor protests and protest organizers, but quite another thing to refer them to your counterterrorism unit," said Leslie Cagan, national coordinator for United for Peace and Justice.

Ummm... In an age when tree-huggers (oops, sorry, environmentally concerned citizens) burn down car lots and construction sites, when mainstream moonbat BDS sufferers openly wish for the assassination of the POTUS, and every lefty loon seems aligned with every fascist movement they can ID, it would be irresponsible for those monitoring the looney-toons and their web sites to refer them to conter-terrorism units and ask, "Hey, are any of the folks running these organizations known to engage in violent activities?"

The appended correction in the second link (to the NYT) contains... A front-page article yesterday about efforts by the F.B.I. to interview prospective political demonstrators in advance of the Republican National Convention in New York misidentified the Justice Department office that found the bureau's monitoring of previous protests to be constitutional. It is the Office of Legal Counsel, not of Legal Policy. If it is constitutional they why is it a scandal?

The claims of "scandal" here strike me as patently absurd. "We have a right to scream, you have no right to listen!" And the moonbats wonder why the rest of us are increasingly fed up with their moronic antics.

This is just breaking. I have heard from confidential sources that the SEC is monitoring companies that trade on the stock exchange!!!!!!!!

More on this as details become available.

Hmmmm...I wonder if the AG thinks it ok for the FBI, the Pentagon or the NSA to monitor Ronnie Earle's or Patrick Fitzgerald's communications?

flenser said...

Hmmmmm..

I wonder if Howard Dean thinks it's Ok to collaborate with Al Queda.....

Hmmm.

I wonder if markg8 thinks it's ok to kill pre-schoolers and suck their brains out ....

flenser said...

Hmmm.

I wonder if Hillary Clinton is the secret leader of a Satanic church ...

flenser said...

Hmmm.

I wonder if John Kerry is a pedophile ...

C'mon flenser you should know better than that. Do you really think given the chance, and they gave themselves the chance, they wouldn't take a peek at what's coming up in a couple of scandals that threaten to derail their whole agenda and possibly send Rove, DeLay and Cheney to prison?

I think ... strike that, I know, that you are engaging in completely baseless speculation. You are free to "wonder" about whatever you like, just as I am.

But don't try to pretend that your fantasy life intersects with reality.

Unless you are even more stupid than I think you are, and I don't think thats possible, you must know that the Earle case against DeLay is a complete sham and will go down in flames.

Knuck, describing moonbat howling:

"We have a right to scream, you have no right to listen!"

Love it!
