Once again Arlen Specter is making a big noise
about getting telco executives to testify on the issue of Bu$hCo's illegal surveillance. Unfortunately we see this from the senior Senator from Pennsylvania all too often, like when he threatened to yank NSA's funding
as a way to reign in the agency's excesses. And it's too bad Senator Specter can't seem to find his cojones. As Julie O. points out in this excellent article
, the telcos are acting like a co-equal branch of government and are in need of some serious correction, subpoena-style.
Oh Arlen... I might actually believe you had a set of balls if you began spelling your name like this : "Spectre".
Maybe "Casper the Castrated Ghost" would be more appropriate.
Tina, like the Xsociate says the man is ghostly, insubstantial--full of words but no action.
Do they ever really mean anything? I think not.
Serious correction indeed!
