      The most fascinating expose I've ever read of Dick Cheney. So mesmerizing was it that I completely stopped eating dinner so I could fully comprehend was I reading. Thank you sooo much for sharing.

      Kind regards,

  • Top 10 Ways the US is the Most Corrupt Country in the World
    • 11. The US has a government agency accountable to no one, chartered to break international law. It sells drugs, commits murders and assassinations, bribes other countries, illegally spies, creates wars, sponsors terrorism and trains dictators.

      12. The US has a monetary system, accountable to no one, controlled by private banks which fleece the American public of their wealth and hard labor through artificial inflation and interest.

  • Department of Justice Spying on AP Reporters' Telephone Contacts Threatens Democracy
    • Perhaps you're right in that regard. I'm ignorany though as to what other means they could have used in order that they isolate the alleged perpetrator(s) of this alleged crime. I am 100% full bore against the Patriot Act type spying. Do you think this particular act fall into that category

    • Mr. Cole: I'm perplexed as to why the media can commit an alleged crime (releasing confidential information) without their having to face the consequences of such action. According to Thinkprogress.org:

      "Why that drew the attention of the Justice Department, however, is that the CIA was the one who foiled the plot, which the AP report made clear:
      The FBI is examining the latest bomb to see whether it could have passed through airport security and brought down an airplane, officials said. They said the device did not contain metal, meaning it probably could have passed through an airport metal detector. But it was not clear whether new body scanners used in many airports would have detected it.
      The would-be suicide bomber, based in Yemen, had not yet picked a target or bought a plane ticket when the CIA stepped in and seized the bomb, officials said. It’s not immediately clear what happened to the alleged bomber.

      AP learned of the plot a week before publishing, but “agreed to White House and CIA requests not to publish it immediately” due to national security concerns. But, by reporting the CIA’s involvement in foiling the plot, they put AQAP on notice that the CIA had a window into their activities. The AP’s reporting also led to other stories involving an operative in place within AQAP, and details of the operations he was involved in. That operative, it was feared, would be exposed and targeted by AQAP as retribution for siding with the United States."

      This is absolute fair game in my mind. They fully endangered the life of American citizens. I mean, is this not why Scooter Libby was prosecuted?

      Thank You!
