so much for that "vital tool" in the war on terror

Yesterday, Senator Russ Feingold released the following statement:

“For more than five years, the President has conducted an illegal program, including more than a year during which he publicly asserted that this violation of the law was absolutely essential to protecting the public from terrorists. I am pleased that the President has been forced to return to the law and that this program has been terminated. I continue to have many questions about what the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has decided and intend to scrutinize carefully how the Court has interpreted the FISA statute. In addition, while I welcome the decision to stop conducting surveillance without judicial approval, the President now needs to respond fully to legitimate congressional questions about the complete history of this now-terminated illegal program.”

And don't give me that crap about giving aid and comfort to the enemy. The warrantless eavesdropping program, which the president defended so vociferously a year ago, has now been terminated. There is no harm whatsoever in releasing the details of a defunct program (except for the stomach cramps Bush & Cheney will experience when the full extent of their illegal, unconstitutional activities are brought to light). Censure is only the beginning...


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
