Connecting The Dots
Mark Steyn, Canada's most important contribution to Geopolitics in history, shows how the same tired old lefties who complained that the Bush administration should have been able to connect the dots on the 9/11 attacks before it happened and should have prevented the whole tragedy, are now outraged that the administration is trying to connect the dots to prevent a future attack. He is, of course, talking about the new outrage over NSA's surveillance programs. NSA doesn't really scare me much. I mean, I'm a libertarian, so it does cause me to involuntarily shiver a bit, but really, if the American government is serious about trying to identify threats before they fully materialize, they'll NECESSARILY have programs like this running at all times. How else to do it?
