Here We Go Again

With news today that the "U.S. government gained sweeping access to international banking records as part of a secret program…" we can count on another round of criticism of the Bush administration.

When it was reported last December that the National Security Agency had been monitoring telephone billing records in order to track terrorist activities, political opponents of the President began shouting that the NSA program was an illegal invasion of privacy. As sure as I'm writing this, we'll hear the same thing about this program, which is designed to cut off financial support of terrorism.

My question is this: can anyone give me one verifiable example of a serious U.S. government intrusion into the life of an innocent U.S. citizen because of either of these programs?

One of the primary purposes of government is to protect its citizens. The Bush administration is trying to do just that. They're not eavesdropping on our conversation with Aunt Martha; they're not tapping into our checking account in order to steal our Saturday night poker money. They're trying to protect the citizenry from the threat of terrorism.

The left in this country needs to shut up and let the government do its job.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media is once again doing what they do best these days...trying to thwart every effort the Bush administration makes to keep us all safer.

I think it's time for the Bush to take the gloves off when it comes to the MSM leaking sensitive information like this. There must be some accountability.
