SURVEILLANCE….Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, here’s part of the latest tirade aimed in her direction from desperate conservatives. This is from Thomas Sowell over at National Review:
As regards the war on terrorism and the terrorists? war against the west, Nancy Pelosi has opposed having international phone calls to and from terrorists monitored by American intelligence agencies.
This is, flatly, a lie. Pelosi, like many Democrats, opposes NSA surveillance of American residents without a warrant. That is all she opposes. Period.
The rest of the piece isn’t much more honest. But this business of liberals “opposing surveillance of terrorists” is McCarthyish mendacity of the worst kind. Even National Review should be embarrassed to peddle it.
