Cheney the Big Dick Spews NSA Spy Lies
The Big Dick spewed the following lie (in addition to many others) at the Heritage Foundation on Weds: "There are no communications more important to the safety of the US than those related to al Qaeda that have 1 end in the US. If we'd been able to do this before 9/11, we might have been able to pick up on 2 of the hijackers who flew a jet into the Pentagon. They were in the US, communicating w/ al Qaeda associates overseas, but we didn't know they were here plotting until it was too late." Dem Sen Russ Feingold of Wisconsin dismissed Cheney's argument as "the kind people like to make sometimes when they're trying to cover their tracks." Yeah, 5 Deferments Dick is trying to cover up something... like perhaps the serious connection between Saudi Arabian financing and the terrorists & that between '96 &'98 the Clinton admin was tracking Bin Laden's cell phone ? And as I had already shown in this post on Dec 21/05 "Bush Lies Again: Alhazmi & Almihdhar Were Already Being Spied on by NSA for Yrs", the US knew exactly who those 2 hijackers were and had extensive intelligence on them. Internal breakdowns, not shortcomings in spy laws, were at play before 9/11, and no amount of BushCo lies can wipe away these facts. Nice try ya Big Dick.
