Now here is another example of Libtardian Logic. There appears to be someone from the CIA leaking information to the Associated Press. So instead of getting the phone records of suspects from the CIA, they target the AP.
It is not a crime to receive information but it is a crime to leak classified information. Instead of targeting the AP, why don't they target the people who were actually suspects in the leaking???
If they accidentally get a conversation between a member of the CIA and a AP reporter, that is a different issue.<quoted text>

It does not matter. What the reporters of AP were doing was NOT a violation of the law, ergo the FBI had no right to execute a search warrant on them.
The alleged crime had been committed over six months ago and they subpoenaed only records for the past two months!?! It seems they are not investigating last years crimes but crimes that MIGHT BE committed in the future.
"It does not matter" , you wrote. It DOES matter simply because you accused the administration of tapping AP phones only and asked why instead they did not tap CIA phones. I asked how you knew they were not tapping CIA phones and you come back with "It does not matter"? Do you see your mistake now? Talk about having your cake and devouring it too.

Howard Zinn on The Uses of History and the War on Terrorism

Howard Zinn is one of this country’s most celebrated historians. His classic work “A People’s History of the United States” changed the way we look at history in America. First published a quarter of a century ago, the book has sold over a million copies and is a phenomenon in the world of publishing–selling more copies each successive year.

You don't "get it". Let's say they tap your phone lines because some criminal will try and contact you? At some point it becomes a violation of your civil rights!!!
What if they put a GPS tracker on your car? Is that okay with you? How about your winnings in Las Vegas. Would it be okay for the Canadian government to send an agent to Las Vegas to check and see if you win any money there? I bet you would get upset but just because you think Obama is in trouble, he has the right to break our laws!?!

Can You Afford To Retire? Video / http://tinyurl.com/h8xdx
The baby boomer generation is headed for a shock as it hits retirement: many of them will be long on life expectancy but short on savings. The two main strategies for funding retirement -- lifetime pensions and 401(k)-style savings plans -- are in serious trouble. In "Can You Afford to Retire?" FRONTLINE correspondent Hedrick Smith ("Is Wal-Mart Good for America?") investigates this looming financial crisis and the outlook for middle-class Americans.(more)»

They're All Against Jobs
by Sen. Fritz Hollings / December 20, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/ydr27ze
Who is against jobs in the United States? The big banks, Wall Street, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Business Roundtable, the United States Chamber of Commerce, the National Retail Federation, Corporate America, the President of the United States, Congress of the United States. Everyone is crying for jobs, but no one seems to understand why there aren't any. And the reason for those opposing jobs is money.
Beginning in 1973, big banks made most of their profit outside of the United States. Industries off-shoring, investing, banks financing the investments, transfer fees, fees and interest on the loans made for bigger profits. Long since, the big banks under the leadership of David Rockefeller have led the way to off-shore and make a bigger profit. Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citicorp and Wall Street, conspiring for a bailout and now using it for bonuses, make more money from the off-shored operations.

Tick-Tick-Tick: Do 60 Minutes And America’s Billionaires Want Us to Beg?/ May 10, 2013 / http://tinyurl.com/btvpcxj
If you’re a jobless person looking for food or a wounded vet who needs health care,“60 Minutes” has a solution: Beg a billionaire for it. That was part of the powerful, if covert, message behind last Sunday’s “60 Minutes” broadcast.

The rest of Sunday night’s message, which tracks closely with the right-wing agenda promoted by billionaires like Pete Peterson, goes like this: Keep downsizing government. Keep tolerating and promoting the hijacking of our national wealth by the rich, even as it suffocates the middle class and creates soaring poverty rates. Surrender democratic control over the social safety net to wealthy donors.

And whatever you do, keep stroking their insatiable egos.

The Agenda

Did the “60 Minutes” staff sit around a table and choose this message? Probably not. Chances are we’re just seeing more evidence of a herd mentality among our well-paid elites. But they might as well have.

This ideological bias agenda was glaringly evident in Lesley Stahl’s “Counterinsurgency Cops” story. Viewers weren’t informed that Stahl is on the board of anti-government billionaire Pete Peterson’s Foundation, for example, or that her foundation works closely with the defense contractors of “Fix the Debt.” Those contractors stand to make billions more in taxpayer-funded profits if America’s cities buy into Stahl’s premise and purchase even more military equipment – including tanks, sniperscopes, full battle regalia, night vision goggles, and drones.

The Peterson anti-government vision dovetails nicely with a conservative fantasy world in which all government spending is bad – but military and police spending somehow isn’t “government,” or “big government,” or whatever it is they’re railing against today. We discussed “Counterinsurgency Cops” in Part 1 of this piece.

It depends on the context. But let's not get into this, it's way too complex and abstract for birthers. Instead, here is a suggestion : in all circumstances, choose one way to write it and stick to it. If the laws of average work out, you should be right about 50% if the time. You'll get good ratings from your birther ilk.

Hummmm, what caught my eye on this case is that they did not release the name of the individual. WHY? I asked that same question so I contacted one of my friends and the reason seems to be ..... skin color. Not only is this NCO black, but his victims are .... black, and the John's who used their services are also .... black!!!
And we all know, Obama does not want to let black people look bad while he is in the White House. I am sorry, Obama did not make them black and just because they were black does not mean they have to get involved in these perverted crimes. But to turn a blind eye to the problem only means is that Obama is a ...... RACIST!!!
The fact is that black people are almost four times more likely to be involved in crimes than are white people. And that is not white people's fault!!!
Should we white people just start to commit more crimes so black people will not look as bad? Maybe it is the black people who need to straighten up!
Now, watch one of you Libtards call me a racist! Why knot? Julian Bond just said all TEA Partiers are RACIST and Fascists too!

Member Of Fort Hood Sexual Assault Response Team Accused Of Abuse
by KRISHNADEV CALAMUR - May 14, 2013

An Army sergeant who was part of the Fort Hood, Texas, sexual-assault response office is under investigation for abusive sexual contact.

NPR's Larry Abramson is reporting on the story for our Newscast unit:

"The Army refused to release the name of the sergeant first class, who was part of the response team at Fort Hood, Texas, dealing with sexual assault cases. The man faces accusations of pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates. The sergeant was suspended from all duties, and has not been charged. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered the Army to investigate."
In a statement, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said the Senate Armed Services Committee, which he chairs, is considering ways to counter the problem of sexual abuse in the military.

"Tragically, the depth of the sexual assault problem in our military was already overwhelmingly clear before this latest highly disturbing report," he said.

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who last week introduced a bill with Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., that would provide sexual assault victims in the military greater protections, called the Fort Hood incident "sickening."
