Ok, I know I already linked to this article in my GD thread about Goss here But I cannot debate this one in as civil a manner as I would like. Jesus Christ, permissible CIA investigations in the US, on US citizens? Are you fucking kidding me? Now I’m not trying to go anti-Bush here, and I know that it’s inevitable that this thread will go that way, but I’ve snapped. That’s it, I am seriously fucking outraged that the mere suggestion that our foreign intelligence branch be allowed to conduct operations against it’s own people isn’t starting riots in the streets. This is tantamount to fucking treason. Do we even entertain the idea of possessing civil rights in the US anymore? Have we all just rolled over and died? Shit, maybe we should go and dig up the bones of Joe McCarthy and use them to finally beat the Bill of Rights into tatters once and for all. Democracy’s “great experiment” is failing miserably if this man is appointed. Porter Goss, you are now and forever more my enemy.
Wow, first double post. Can a mod please close this one. Thanks.
