Almost certainly, considering Obama is doing the same fucking thing.

Unconfirmed rumor but still interesting.
Perhaps John Clark does exist? and he worked for Cheney?

Hilariously enough this was something that I was all for in High School. It seemed to me that if you had a country with a corrupted power structure it would be much more reasonable to have a black ops team swoop in and execute the problems and see what happens next than to start a war, which would have a more direct civilian cost.

Benovolant monarchies are much more efficient.

Ha Ha. True, but what happens when the monarchs aren't feeling so benevolant ; )

What the hell? Seriously. That's enraging.


Also, off topic! Evil or Very Mad There were no wiretaps ANYWHERE in that article. It made me sad.

The topic's been dead for months, and even before that it quit being about wiretapping. Suck it up.

It's the same theme of "Obama doing stuff he publicly condemned while seeking election."
