Supposedly, people under scrutiny possibly may have links to terrorists, but I think that anybody who's donated to an antiwar, anti-Bush organization or has signed an impeach Bush petition or gathered for a peace rally may be on the list.
I'm wondering if all those mainstream news outlets that didn't print the spy story when they learned about it over a year ago had the same reaction I did--what's the big deal? The supposedly liberal New York Times didn't publish the "news" (they say) because the White House insisted this could jeopardize investigations. I think they found it as news unworthy as I do. We all know the reputation of Bush Inc. and the assaults have become so predictable.
This administration has used our Constitution as toilet paper. If the White House had an outhouse, the Constitution would function like the Sears Roebuck Catalog did back in my father's youth. It would've been within easy reach of those three holes in that little outbuilding on the family farm.
Remember, the war in Iraq is unconstitutional. That's one of the Bush Administration's biggest abuses of power today--the one responsible for more than 2,150 dead American troops and an estimated 100,000 Iraqi deaths. Yeah, yeah, I know Bush said "30,000 more or less" Iraqis, but even those who still support him would have to admit that this is inaccurate.
No, I don't have ties to terrorists but I sure am vocal about the lies of George Bush and I'd love to get my hands on the file of those Americans under surveillance. If my name isn't on it, I'll be truly humiliated.
