NYT Editorial Radio Fear America
Mr. Bush announced that he had vetoed the 2008 intelligence budget because it contains a clause barring the C.I.A. from torturing prisoners. Mr. Bush told the nation that it “would take away one of the most valuable tools in the war on terror — the C.I.A. program to detain and question key terrorist leaders and operatives.” That is simply not true. Nothing in the bill shuts down the C.I.A. interrogation program. It just requires the C.I.A.’s interrogators to follow the rules already contained in the Army field manual on prisoners.
This is not the first time that Mr. Bush has misled Americans on intelligence-gathering and antiterrorism operations, and it may not be the last. It will be up to the next president to restore the rule of law.
I'm confused... we have just about everyone on the planet in agreement that this administration has been violating the rule of law, and that the Preznit has broken his oath of office (to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America
), yet we need to wait for the next
administration to return us to the rule of law?! What are we waiting for? Impeach the clown-show now!
