In the past month we have learned that American Citizens have been spied on by their Own Government. I realize that you want to call it "Eavesdropping". Eavesdropping is what strangers do in an elevator, what you have been doing is NOT eavesdropping.
You have been spying on Citizens, secretly, under false pretenses and utilizing multiple agencies to carry out your demands. We learned two weeks ago that Pentagon has been keeping files and investigating Peace Activists and Anti-War Protestors, and others of" Concern". That means that you and Mr.Rumsfeld are afraid of Quaker Grandmothers that Bake cookies and hold "meetings" ? What makes them terrorists? We have watched you and Mr.Cheney fight our Elected representitives over Torture, as more and more stories come out about Rendtion: secret prisons and planes and Individuals tortured. And now we find out that you have been spying on American Citizens Illegally for Over three years, and misusing powers and laws and agencies to do so. We learned that even though you had the access and power of the FISA court and the Patriot Act you Needed Other ways to Spy on citizens. You have Violated the Constitution that you promised to Faithfully Uphold and the very laws that you vowed in January 2001 to Faithfully Execute.
Presidents that Lie to the Citizens and the Congress and do not uphold Our Laws are Impeached.
We have learned that 1000's of Citizens have been monitored, emails and also phone calls. We also know that you have authorized the FBI working in Conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security to monitor and Investigate people's records, including Library Records, as well as Medical records, and book purchases. If the Patriot Act even allowed your Administration do spy in this manner, WHY would you need More Ways to Spy by using the NSA in an illegal Manner. And we know that since the NSA was involved it will be almost impossible for Americans to learn WHO you thought were and are Terrorists in your mind.Tonight before you go to bed, you need to take a Long look in the mirror and ask , Who does threaten you Mr.Bush, WHO is the Enemy Within ?
Are they Muslims? Are they People of Non-Christian Religion that you do not feel comfortable with? Buddhists? Are they People with Names that you can't pronounce? Are they people that speak in a different language? Or are they Anti War Grannies? Are they Gold Star Mothers that have lost children in your Oil War? Are they Scientists? Are they Researchers ? Are They College students studying Political Science ? Are they Lawyers that represented People that you do not respect ? Are they Military Leaders that did not Agree with you on War Tactics? Are they Writers ? Are they Ex-Ambassadors ? Are they Whistle Blowers that went to the Press and tried to get the Truth out ? Are they Vets who happen to be against your war ? Are they Ex-Federal Employees who left in disgust with your regime changes? Are they Civil Rights Activists ? Are there any Environmental Or Health Activists and Advocates on your lists ? Are there any Nurses and Moms on the Lists of People You authorized to be spied on ? Were The People on Your Lists that you felt Threatened this Country just " Fair Game" ?
The Founding Fathers wrote Laws and Created Our Constitution to help Protect us as a People against Abuses of Power and Hubris. They wrote laws to Protect us, We the People, from Tyranny, from the Enemy Within.
