Peregrin Wood has reported on one aspect of this breaking story: that the Bush administration has been engaging in what it calls “domestic military operations” carried out by the Armed Forces of the United States. This is a major violation of the separation of the U.S. military from domestic affairs.
But that’s just one of two crucial ways to view this news break by the Associated Press. Another way to put it is that the Bush Administration Suspended the Constitution for Over A Year without telling anybody.
Well, it’s true. That’s what the Bush administration did. It declared in secret that it did not have to follow the U.S. Constitution in its conduct. Then it carried out its declaration in secret.
Sure, now that the news has come out, the Bush administration is clarifying that gee, it ISN”T SUSPENDING THE CONSTITUTION ANY MORE. Except that it is. It is still carrying out exactly the same activities, which apparently involve the warrantless surveillance of millions of American communications. The ONLY difference is that now, the Bush administration SAYS that its conduct is NOT in violation of the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Back then, it ADMITTED secretly that its actions ran against the U.S. Constitution.
WAKE UP, AMERICA! Your liberties have been and are being eviscerated.
What are you going to do about it?
