29. How can HuffPo...? They read his statement carefully
Edited on Fri Jun-20-08 05:10 PM by autorank
He starts out with the Orwellian assumption about how the Bush-Cheney created hatred of the US
requires creating more tools to fight it rather than addressing the real problem - we slaughter,
torture, and abuse Iraqis on a massive scale and they and others know about it and react, probably
much as we would, with outrage.

Here's the passage:

"It does, however, grant retroactive immunity,(Hes voting for it knowing that it grants immunity) and I will work in the Senate to remove this provision so that we can seek full accountability for past offenses.(I'll make an effort to remove the provision I vote for But this compromise guarantees a thorough review by the Inspectors General of our national security agencies to determine what took place in the past, and ensures that there will be accountability going forward.I'll read some bull shit report and be upset)] By demanding oversight and accountability, a grassroots movement of Americans has helped yield a bill that is far better than the Protect America Act."(Hey, grassroots, go screw yourselves. You were all about having telcos face "consequences" but they are not. Get it yet ;))"

Well crafted but it presumes we can't read.

Let's all send him an email. He'll come around maybe, maybe not.
