Not a Peaceful Welcome...

@ 10:04 PM (111 months, 2 days ago)

In an interview with George W. Bush, NBC's Brian Williams asked Junior about the Administration's early assertion that we would be greated as liberators.

Junior responded: "I think we are welcomed. But it was not a peaceful welcome."

So Junior, if the "welcome" was not a peaceful one, how could it be considered a welcome?

Peace Activists: You're On Candid Camera!

@ 07:24 PM (111 months, 2 days ago)

NBC News has obtained a previously secret, 400-page document produced by the Defense Department, which shows the United States Government is spying on Americans; particularly, activists and organizations that align themselves with peace.

The spy database includes approximately four (4) dozen anti-war meetings and protests, some of which took place far away from any military installation or building.

In particular, the Pentagon spied on a group of activists coming together at a Quaker Meeting House in Florida.  On their agenda: protesting military recruitment at high schools.  (Oh the horror.  How dare they protest?  How dare they not want their young children to go off to war!)

So, dear American citizen, just be careful the next time you DARE to have an opinion about a political matter, or want to peacefully assemble.  You could be on the Pentagon's candid camera.

Is the Pentagon spying on Americans?
