You did not show any proof that any Republican interfered with the CIA/DIA's intelligence. It was not until the Patriot Act removed a Jimmy Carter law that prevented the FBI and the CIA/DIA from talking to each other.
Jimmy Carter almost totally dismantled the CIA and it took Reagan almost his whole eight years to restore the CIA.
So... THAT prick is responsible for the CIA?

Thanks Reagan. You just fell about 37 slots on my first to worst list of presidents.

Molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor poses calamity for marine life
As much as 1,400 tons of molasses spill into Honolulu Harbor, killing thousands of fish, and officials say there's no way to clean it up.
By Matt Pearce
September 13, 2013, 3:37 p.m.
Fish began dying en masse in the waters around Honolulu after hundreds of thousands of gallons of molasses spilled into Honolulu Harbor early this week, and there's nothing officials can do to clean it up.
Thousands of fish have died from the sugary sludge. Crabs lay dead along the harbor bottom while more fish floated listlessly, some seeming to gasp above the surface of the water contaminated by the syrupy sweetener.
The spill is one of the worst man-made disasters to hit Hawaii in recent memory, officials said, not least because no one has quite seen anything like it.
http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-honolulu-...
Your link said : "no one has quite seen anything like it." Check this out, and same thing happened in Halifax, Nova Scotia. And, the Boston one was worse than the Hawaii one, yes, 21 dead.

The Great Molasses Flood of 1919

Although it's been almost 90 years since the flood, they say that on a hot day, the streets in some parts of Boston still bleed molasses.

On January 15, 1919, a sound later described as a dull, muffled roar emanated briefly from the six-story-tall molasses tank at the Purity Distilling Company. This grumbling was heard for only a moment, when it was shortly interrupted by a terrific explosion that sent the tank's half-inch-thick sheet iron shell flying through the air in three giant pieces. The force of the explosion demolished several nearby buildings, including a fire station which was crushed by a huge chunk of the steel tank, and the Purity offices which were flattened.

Even more catastrophically, the tank's two-and-a-half million gallons of molasses were loosed upon the city. A huge wave of molasses flowed swiftly down the surrounding streets, pushing buildings off their foundations and overturning wagons, carts, horses, and motorcars. It broke the girders of a nearby elevated train, and tossed a train from its tracks. The streets were quickly filled with the sticky debris of ruined buildings, and syrupy molasses sludge up to three feet deep.

Rescue efforts began immediately, but most who ventured into the mess quickly became mired in the goo, and soon required rescuing themselves. Terrified survivors were seen running away from the chaotic scene covered from head to toe in dark brown molasses.

The molasses in Purity's fifty-eight foot tall storage tank had been awaiting transfer to their processing plant, where it would then be used for sweetener, and to be used in making ethyl alcohol for drinking-liquor and munitions. The exact cause of the explosion was never determined, but it is generally attributed to unseasonably warm temperatures combined with defects in the tank. Reports indicate that when the tank was first filled with molasses, so many leaks appeared that Purity had it painted brown to hide them.

In all, twenty-one lives were lost in the disaster-- mostly to crushing and asphyxiation-- and 150 injuries were reported. It is said that a lawyer for Purity arrived on the scene within hours and tried to pin the disaster on anarchist saboteurs, but despite this continued insistence, the company ultimately paid out about $1 million in settlements, equivalent to about $11 million today. The nearby harbor remained brown through the rest of the winter and spring, and it took over six months to clean the structures, automobiles, and cobblestone streets of the sticky mess.

By coincidence, the 18th amendment of the US Constitution was ratified the very next day, enabling the Prohibition.

Oh, have you apologized to Rogue?
He didn't ask for one, knows I'm right. You don't rejoice when a foreign head of state sullies your country and your president. That is an internal matter. I don't like my prime minister, really don't, but will not be rejoicing if some foreign leader uses the kind of language Putin used on Obama and the United States. That was treason language plain as day.

Oh, fyi, Rogue just admitted that oil WAS the reason for the war. And even that reason failed. No oil.

Terrorism prevention Act--Conference Report
Orrin Hatch: Mr. President, again, in the real world, in the case of the Unabomber or a terrorist where there is a real threat or an immediate concern, you do not need this provision to get an emergency wiretap. All the Senator's motion does is expand the number of crimes that would trigger the wiretap statute. This amendment was offered during the Senate debate. It was defeated. It was not a part of the Senate bill. It was not a part of the House bill. It is not a part of our conference report, and rightly so. I oppose this provision that could expand emergency wiretap authority to permit the Government to begin a wiretap prior to obtaining court approval in a greater range of cases than the law presently allows. I personally find this proposal troubling. I am concerned that this provision, if enacted, would unnecessarily broaden emergency wiretap authority. Under current law, such authority exists when life is in danger, when the national security is threatened, or when an organized crime conspiracy is involved. In the real world, we do not need this amendment to get emergency wiretap authority, and that is a fact.
Let me also say that this authority is constrained by a requirement that surveillance be approved by the Court within 48 hours, but that authority already exists in those areas I have addressed.

Dan Burton (R-Ind): If the Government of the United States can through, quote-unquote, good faith tap our phones and intrude into our lives, they violate our constitutional liberties, and that is something that we should not tolerate, and that is in section 305 and section 307. The FBI can gain access to individual phone billing records without a subpoena or a court order. Once again I believe that infringes upon our constitutional rights and liberties, and while we are trying to deal with terrorism, and we should, we should not violate our constitutional rights and liberties, and I believe this bill in its present form does. And that is why I think the Barr amendment is absolutely essential if we are going to pass something that will really deal with terrorism crime, but protect the liberties that we fought so hard for in the Revolutionary War.
