Panel To Call For Review Of Wiretapping Of Scholar

by Eric Lichtblau and James Risen - December 7th, 2008 - New York Times

A Congressional oversight panel plans to ask the National Security Agency to start an investigation into new evidence that the agency illegally wiretapped a Muslim scholar in Northern Virginia and concealed the eavesdropping during a 2005 trial in which the scholar was convicted on terrorism charges.

Note that the key concern is not whether the "scholar" convicted was actually guilty of helping the Islamo-fascist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba. This is the group that recently perpetrated the terror attacks in Mumbai (formerly Bombay) in India . The concern here is whether the guilty Islamo-fascist "scholar" was convicted with sufficient concern for his "humanitarian" and "civil" rights. The Democrats never care about the "humanitarian" and "civil" rights of victims. Especially when they are Americans.

These new investigations are intended to assure that in the future, government employees will be afraid to take actions that hurt our enemies. Like the intimidation of the Clinton years which allowed for FBI agents to actually refuse to investigate the terrorists who took down the Twin Towers because of fear it would not be perceived as politically correct.

It is ridiculous to think that we can fight a war with the same rules that are used to prosecute criminals. Only these lawyers on the left think it is the same. Anyone who argues in favor of that must be presumed a traitor ... as far as I am concerned. However liberal lawyers [Democrats] seem to be much more concerned with protecting our enemies than with protecting our nation. Why is that?
