Bush's War on Whistleblowers Continues

The most secretive administration in forty years took umbrage over the leaking of classified documents. Justice Chief Alberto Gonzales stretched America's flexibility to use harsh interrogation techniques, illegal in World War II. The greatest generation rose above torturing people, but the current group of exclusivites will stop at nothing to get their way. What's a little simulated drowning amongst friends? It's no different than Yale college high jinks, except legacies (like the armchair Commander in Chief above) are permanently on the giving end of abuse.

Just as members of secret societies don't break the code by spilling the beans, government whistle blowers need to pay for opening double secret files to the media. This prompted the latest threat from Junior's minions:

Another White House spokesman, meanwhile, criticized the leak of such information to the news media and questioned the motivations of those who do so. "It's troubling," Tony Fratto said Friday. "I've had the awful responsibility to have to work with The New York Times and other news organizations on stories that involve the release of classified information. And I can tell you that every time I've dealt with any of these stories, I have felt that we have chipped away at the safety and security of America with the publication of this kind of information."

Did you catch the implied threat to the nation caused by the unknown accuser? Not only are they liars (according to George W. and Dana), they just armed the trigger on a suitcase nuke, God knows where, with their devious act. Honesty and transparency are long gone. The countdown to an executive-corporate state has commenced. T-minus four years and counting, regardless of which party is in power. The government industrial monstrosity has landed. It alone will have freedom...
