Oh, brother

I've been safe from terrorism the past seven years. Have you been safe from terrorism the past seven years?

Liberals, even though they were safe from terrorism after 9/11 under President George W. Bush's watch, want to "investigate alleged Bush misdeeds" ... specifically Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy.

Oh, brother.

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag:
Two of Congress's most radical members believe George W. Bush's America was the equal of apartheid South Africa.
The concept of the “truth commission” originated in post-apartheid South Africa, when the Mandela government launched an investigation into crimes against humanity. Punishments were waived on the grounds that the nation needed to know the truth about the white minority regime's suppression of black Africans. Presumably, Leahy assumes President Bush engaged in equally egregious behavior during the War on Terror. Leahy, like his Michigan colleague Carl Levin, hopes to distort any circumstantial evidence he uncovers about how Bush-44 successfully kept this nation free from a second terrorist attack for seven years into proof of the greatest violation of civil rights since Lincoln suspended habeas corpus.

If the investigation exposes the ongoing, covert measures Bush has taken to keep America safe, Leahy will only smile as they are revealed. He has a long history of exposing the most vital secrets of our nation. At least one operative was murdered after Leahy publicly leaked a 1985 intercept that had enabled the capture of the Achille Lauro terrorists. After Leahy leaked a 1986 covert operation to topple Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddhafi, it was necessarily canceled. And Leahy argued that 270 victims of Libya's Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie Scotland, might still be alive. Finally, in January 1987, Leahy was forced to resign as vice-chair of the Senate's Select Committee on Intelligence after leaking classified information on the Iran-Contra affair. It is perhaps not surprising that, after 9/11, the FBI investigated national security leaks from Congress, specifically House and Senate Select Intelligence committee leaks.

Patrick Leahy sounds like an American traitor to me. How do people like him continue to be allowed to operate?

America, wake up!

Wow. Convincing article. Especially where it refers to "Bush-44."
