There is no question that the big winners from last week were George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, two men vilified for years by the left, the media, and Barack Obama as eager to use the War on Terror as an excuse to violate the Constitutional rights of everyday Americans. Obama ran for president as the anti-Bush in many respects, but especially on the issue of surveillance and snooping.
Well, we now know — no thanks to the American mainstream media — that Obama’s hypocrisy on this issue is as vast and wide as the dragnet he is using to snoop into our computers and phone calls (and those of the media during those rare times they don’t play White House stenographer). Moreover, Obama not only embraced his predecessors anti-terror surveillance policies; he has gone a step further in declaring the War on Terror pretty much over, even as he expands on those policies.
