It's time to probe the eavesdroppers

According to The Washington Post, the White House is continuing to resist Congressional efforts to look into the NSA scandal, that is, Bush's domestic eavesdropping program.

If ever there were a time for checks and balances -- especially after the debacle of the run-up to war in Iraq, the appointment of a presidential apologist like Alito to the Supreme Court, and all the recent talk of the unitary executive -- this is it.

Congress needs to act. Now.

But Democrats can't do it alone. Ultimately, it will take Republicans, the Republican leadership (Frist and Roberts, not just Hagel and Snowe), to rebel against the White House, to place love of country over love of party, and to demand that Bush relent.

  • I understand that it is wrong for a man who has the responsibility to educate students to publish lies, especially of a massacre. But at the same time, doesn´t he have the right to? He is just a single drop of oil in a bowl of water.

    The limits to freedom of speech are finely cut.... Though, many seem to think otherwise.
