Al Queada continues to threaten new attacks in the United States. They have been thwarted for five years through the efforts of hundreds of thousands of American security personnel.
Russ Feingold has promoted a bill to censure the President for intercepting calls from the al Queada leaders in Tora Bora to sleeper cells in Topeka. Feingold is lauded by Democratic Party leaders as "the conscience of the party".
Do terrorists have the right to operate in the United States?
The Democratic Party thinks they do.
Very soon Ken Mehlman will be looking over storyboards that will follow this line. It worked well for Johnson against Goldwater in '64 and it still has the same appeal. Of course, he's going to have to choose between Feingold's gift and Rockefellers gift. Actually disclosing top secret information as the Democrat's top man on the Senate Intelligence Committee carries a little more weight than just extending rights to terrorists. It's nice to have a choice though. And it's only March.
