MERRY CHRISTMAS AL QAEDA
CATEGORY: Media, Politics

This is shaping up to be quite a Christmas for our thuggish friends in al Qaeda. Thanks to an anonymous donor who told tales out of school to the New York Times while kissing the old whore under the mistletoe, visions of sugar plums (not to mention the bloody, mangled bodies of thousands of infidel dogs) are dancing in their heads. For unless something is done to stop it, every loving detail of how the United States government has been listening in to their conversations with their cells and supporters here in America are about to be plastered all over every front page and top every satellite newscast on the planet.

Don’t believe me? The ACLU has already bought the wrapping paper and is about to send a Christmas card with some FOIA requests:

The requests submitted today seek all records about “the policies, procedures and/or practices of the National Security Agency for gathering information through warrantless electronic surveillance and/or warrantless physical searches in the United States …”…. Information received by the organization will be made public on its Web site.

Words fail me at this point. The generosity of the ACLU to the deadly enemies of the United States is beyond belief. The only possible explanation for wanting to expose “all records about the policies, procedures and/or practices of the National Security Agency” with regards to the NSA intercept program is that the ACLU wishes to make it harder for the government to thwart a terrorist attack.

The reason I say this is because this FOIA request is not necessary if one wishes to take an absolutist position in defense of our Fourth Amendment rights. It’s only purpose would be to sabotage the program. For once al Qaeda knows the details of how we keep track of them, it becomes much easier to develop communications strategies to thwart our attempts to monitor their activities.

If the ACLU is against warrantless searches, it is their duty to protest it in a responsible manner, one that would not harm national security so grievously. And please note there is nothing in the FOIA request that would seek to uncover who the government listened in on with the program. Doesn’t that strike you as a bit odd? Rather than ask for the names of specific Americans who have been targeted, they instead seek to shut the program down by revealing its operational secrets.

The more I read about the technical aspects of the program - both hints revealed by participants and intelligent speculation by SIGINT veterans - it is becoming apparent that there is much more to this intercept program than meets the eye. Here’s some general information about the procedures NSA employees went through before they could carry out a “warrantless search:”

At a news conference at the White House on Monday, General Hayden also emphasized that the program’s operations had “intense oversight” by the agency’s general counsel and inspector general as well as the Justice Department. He said decisions on targets were made by agency employees and required two people, including a shift supervisor, to sign off on them, recording “what created the operational imperative.”

An intelligence official who was authorized to speak only on the condition of anonymity said, “It’s probably the most scrutinized program at the agency.” The official emphasized that people whose communications were intercepted under the special program had to have a link to Al Qaeda or a related group, even if indirectly. The official also said that only their international communications could be intercepted. Other officials have said, however, that some purely domestic communications have been captured because of the technical difficulties of determining where a phone call or e-mail message originated.

While the left continues to go bonkers over this and compare the NSA program with what Nixon did a couple of salient facts should be pointed out:

* There is not one scintilla of evidence that any political opponents, anti-war groups, media people, or John Conyers Aunt Sue was caught up in this digital dragnet.

* There is not a shred of proof that the NSA deliberately targeted domestic-only calls.

* There is no evidence that Bush was trying to set up a dictatorship (I know…I know. But I had to put that in there because so many loons on the left actually believe that is what the program is about)

* It is more than probable and in fact likely that one or more terrorist attacks on American soil was thwarted as a result of this program. I have as much proof for saying that as critics have that this is the most egregious case of domestic spying in history. Which is to say, I have zero proof but at the same time have a better chance of being right than the lickspittles who are blowing smoke out of their ass about the criminality of the program.

In the meantime, al Qaeda sits, waits, and watches knowing that they’ve been good little terrorists and that Santa won’t forget them as long as they have the ACLU doing their dirty work for them.

Merry Christmas to all - and to all the self-important, arrogant sons of bitches at the ACLU - a goodnight.

UPDATE

Blogbud Jay at Stop the ACLU has THE question of the day - one that reveals the total hypocrisy of a once admired civil rights organization whose leadership has led it down a partisan political path that is destroying it:

Isn’t it ironic that the ACLU wants our government’s secrets released so the enemy can see, yet they tell our enemies they have the right to keep their secrets from our interrigations?

And the hell of it is, the idiots will never be able to enjoy the irony that question implies. They are that clueless.

    When did this become the Soviet Union of America? Where individual civil liberties are sacrificed on the alter of “state secrets”? Where duly (and constitutionally) passed laws from the legislature can be obeyed or disregarded at the whim of the executive branch?

    If this is what passes for politically correct thinking in America then Osama bin Laden has already won.

    Can’t you see the difference between the legitimate and necessary activity of defending our 4th amendment rights and exposing every single god damned detail of an intelligence operation?

    Jesus Christ! You’re absolutely right. As long as we have you and the ACLU. Bin Laden has already won and we might as well start praying to Mecca 5 times a day.
