If I were anywhere near there I'd go. I hope it's a huge success...
Moral support bump! Wish I could be there!
THis just kills me...
"between civil liberties on the one hand and national security on the other, civil liberties won."
Even a fourth grader can tell you that if you don't have any national security, you won't have any civil liberties. What a lamea$$ propoganda attempt. The NYT can't speak about this matter without using cliches like 'civil liberties' and 'public interest.'
I am working on organizing some slams of the companies who advertise with them. I'm just one person, though. I do what I can.
This one I am sincerely going to try to attend.
The NYT editors originally said said they had to go public because it's the public's right to know about such a secret program. They have since changed that excuse to the fact that there is no harm in their reporting on this program because everyone knew about it anyway. So which one is it?
Civil rights groups certainly didn't know about it. But they do now and are threatening to sue the financial institutions involved in the EU.
Co-Chairman of the 9/11 Commission Kean said that very few people even in the banking world know about SWIFT and how it works, and almost no one would have had any idea that the US was able to get access to this data.
Kean further said that: "The terrorists didn't know the financial transactions went through this one group. Treasury told me, this was a method of financial tracking that people didn't understand, that nobody knew this was how things were done. Top-notch people in the US didn't even know
Bump for Kristin and the DC Freepers!
Will try to make it Monday.
If we were going to be in town we'd be there.
What's the word on investigation into who leaked??
MM is saying on her site that there is a protest on the 10th at 5 p.m. (?)
I will be there in spirit.
Do you guys usually get permits? I know you do for the Walter Reed Freeps but are you getting one here? I would assume you are getting a permit since I'm sure the NYT, while always championing their 1st ammendment rights will no doubt try to crush yours.
Do the DUmmies ever come out and counter-protest? I'm sure if their parents let them use the car they'd show up as long as it's not a school night.
Call the local VFV's and a fire department or two - I'm sure they'll send over some back-ups.
Good grief how I WISH I could go! I will be there in spirit!
Ping for the after report!
What about the WSJ bureau? And the Post?
Slime the Slimes bump!
This is a huge event against the left-wing/terrorist alliance propaganda machine. If I lived within 500 miles I would attend. This opportunity won't come again for some time.
