As a parting shot to the earlier post on Bush's wiretapping, we have both Jonathan Strong and commenter "Matt" agreeing on one simple idea:
"More importantly, I hope the ACLU and Judge Taylor are willing to take responsibility should another terrorist attack occur on American soil"
Good point, guys. So who takes responsibility for those 3,000 deaths back on Sept. 11, 2001? Who do we blame for that? Come on ... you obviously can't wait to find a scapegoat for some future, hypothetical terrorist-inflicted deaths, so you shouldn't have any problem figuring out who's ass should be on the line for all those murders that already happened, right?
Who might be responsible for those? Could it be the people who were actually in charge of the country at the time? Could it be the man who was handed a Presidential Daily Briefing entitled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the U.S.", and immediately went on a month-long vacation?
Come on, boys. You're so fucking stoked to be ready to do some finger pointing based on what might happen in the future, so let's hear it -- who's to blame for 3,000 Americans that are already dead?
Or does that question make you just a wee bit uncomfortable?
BY THE WAY, all of those wankers who can't seem to talk about terrorism without hyper-ventilating themselves into a coma should be asked the following simple question: "What is it that the Bush administration could do before the recent court ruling that they're not allowed to do now?"
It is a simple question, isn't it? But I'm willing to bet that not one of those hysterical airheads can come up with an actual, meaningful answer.
