Progress In the Defeat of America

No sooner is the NSA phone tracking program shown to be valuable and instrumental in saving thousands or even tens of thousands of lives in the cracking of the London terrorist plot than a Carter appointed liberal Federal judge strikes the program down, without even knowing the exact nature of the program, while ignoring pleas from the Administration not to destroy the program, and while ignoring established law regarding the collection of non-content phone data.

It shows that we can't trust liberals to be serious about national security. We cannot afford to have them in charge of the country in a time of war. They will preside over the deaths of American citizens in terrorist attacks all while puffing out their chests in pride at being so enlightened.

They presided over the Khobar Towers bombing, the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the bombing of the Cole, and on and on and did nothing all while they were putting restrictions on counter terrorism intelligence and law enforcement operations. And then finally we got 9-11. And now this.

Let's not go through that cycle again.
