MSNBC Terror Expert says British better than US in Intelligence /WireTaps!
Their Terror analyst said and "...and of course Alex the British intelligence services are so much better than ours because they are allowed to use roving wiretaps where they can follow people around, where we can't do that in this country."

What was that guy smoking? Or, did the Bushies put this guy up to say this so that he can do MORE wiretapping. It was so obvious....

2. Well Britian is the most watched country
in terms of technological surveillance. We're going that way whether you like it or not. I'm no fan of it, but good luck trying to stop it.

3. Well, there's no Bill of Rights in the UK
It was one of the reasons we had a revolution, remember?

6. And over on Faux

Guess he's trying to up his exposure

pretty darn disgusting
