The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Pat Roberts, R-Kans., is blasting DNC chief Howard Dean for criticizing President Bush's terrorist surveillance program, saying the top Democrat's comparison to the Watergate scandal is both "irrational and irresponsible."

Last week Dean complained that "President Bush’s secret program to spy on the American people reminds Americans of the abuse of power during the dark days of President Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew.”

On Friday Roberts fired back:

"Any suggestion that a program designed to track the movement, locations, plans, or intentions of our enemy – particularly those that have infiltrated our borders – is equivalent to abusive domestic surveillance of the past is ludicrous."

About time the republican leadership started taking on the worthless, foul-mouth, anti-American, facist left!

Next, arrest Rockefeller, Durbin and the rest of the bunch. Harry, Harry, turn-around while we put the cuffs on...

Yes!

It is high time that Dr. Demento has been called out for his propensity for stupid statements - stupid even by democrat standards.

"Thy name is Dean"

He is the best thing that ever happened to conservatives. He can't raise money and he's nutty as a fruit cake.

I LOVE HOWARD!

I wish the Pubbies just would leave Howard alone. He is an absolute incompent psychopath. He does far more damage to the rats than he does to Republicans! He is bankrupting the rats.

Porter Goss (head of the CIA) suggested recently (yesterday?) that a Federa Grand Jury be empaneled to investigate the recent "leaks" about intel programs.
This is the kind of language I have been waiting to hear from someone in Washington.
Freepers, email the Attorney General

mailto:AskDOJ@usdoj.gov?subject=USDOJ%20Comments

and tell him to get it in gear!

Hey, I'm not talking about Stormtroopers kicking down doors in the middle of the night- if the Grand Jury returns a "no bill" on Rockefeller, Durbin, Reid, Clinton, Clinton, Pelosi, the NYT, et al, then game over.
But somehow I think a Grand Jury may just choose to indict under Title 18, Part I,Chapter 115, § 2381 of the United States Code:
http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode18/usc_sec_18_00002381----000-.html

Minimum penalty is five years imprisonment, fine of not less than ten thousand dollars, and being barred from holding office. Max penalty is a firing squad.

This was a good response but he missed an opportunbity to go on the offensive and demand that the leakers be brought to justice.
