Dereliction of Duty

Nancy Pelosi should be charged with dereliction of duty. Never has a Speaker of the House so shamelessly put partisan politics ahead of this country's safety

Democrats in charge of Congress have a clear choice before them when they reconvene the House today: Will they act immediately to close significant gaps in America's intelligence capability - or not?

Ten days ago, their leaders chose to adjourn the House of Representatives without passing a Senate-approved anti-terror bill that had overwhelming bipartisan support. As a result, Democrats left America at significant risk and potentially blind to new terrorist plots.

The Democrats' dereliction of duty left our intelligence community without critical, 21st-century intelligence tools for unearthing those plots. Until the House passes this bill, our agencies are bound by the overly bureaucratic Vietnam-era law known as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Senators passed it by a margin of more than 2-1 - no easy feat in this era of partisan gridlock. Democrats in the Pelosi-led House responded by putting the Senate bill in a drawer.

I agree. The last time they took a 12 day break I asked my husband what they are taking a break from? After all, they don't do anything!

Off topic, regarding this comment you left on my post: " I have so little faith left in the voting public in this country that I don't believe it would matter if Hezbollah, Al Qaeda and CAIR endorsed Obama that it would make any difference."

Some idiot named James came in and proved your point! I didn't even answer him except to tell him to read your comment. LOL! I guess I shouldn't laugh. It's not going to be a laughing matter if Obama is our next President. Instead, it's going to be a living nightmare!

Democrats have never been known for showing ANY intelligence.

Come on Crusader, don't be a stooge.

If Chucklenuts needs to eavesdrop on someone he goes to the FISA court and gets a warrant.

I get a charge out of this idea that if we don't grant the tellcoms immunity they won't co-operate with legal court warrants.

It's kinda sad the way right wingers get so irrationally frightened that they'll give up any rights at all.

Of course, I was wiretapped at the Boston Catholic Worker House and it does piss me off a bit. I know leftist organization not fit to live with you good neocons but what can you do.

You people will sell the country out for a bowl of potage while you shake in your undies and then call yourself patriots.

There isn't even enough substance to you to make chicken salad.

I can understand how a buffoonish leftwing chucklenut would object to monitoring the transmissions of terrorists to Americans.

Its in your nature to dismiss terrorism and fabric make-believe oppression.

"There is no terrorist threat" is the mantra of a generation of conspiracy nuts that are too blind to a real conspiracy to kill innocent civilians for the crime of being American.
