Son revisits the sins of the father on America
The 9-11 attacks provided the rationale for what amounts to a Bush family coup against the Constitution.
From the outset, President George Bush used 9-11 to reorganize the federal government and increase its reach far beyond any existing law to delve into the lives of innocent, ordinary people. The new powers allowed the government to arrest them at will and to subject them to endless incarceration without judicial review. Some people were sent abroad to be tortured for crimes they had nothing to do with. Who knows how many people have been tortured in American jails? When government employees within the intelligence community sought to protest, the government fired them and made sure they could never get another job in their areas of expertise. This extraordinary program of spying on Americans, much of which was carried out in fishing expeditions under the Patriot Act, has the makings of a consistent and long-range policy to wreck constitutional government.
Thanks to KW for posting this:
Caught in gratuitous and illegal spying on American citizens, the Bush administration has defended its illegal activity and set the Justice (sic) Department on the trail of the person or persons who informed the New York Times of Bushâ€™s violation of law. Note the astounding paradox: The Bush administration is caught red-handed in blatant illegality and responds by trying to arrest the patriot who exposed the administrationâ€™s illegal behavior
Notably absent is any blogger entry, but interesting nonetheless. A 911blogger regular is mentioned in this list, see if you can pick him out:

As for 9/11: Why do hundreds of family members who lost sons, brothers, fathers, husbands, sisters, cousins, wives â€“ why do they not believe the government's version of 9/11? Are all these people wackos? Part of a â€œleftâ€ or â€œrightâ€ wing conspiracy?
There is far, far more to 9/11 and the justification of the illegal invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq than the average American can even imagine. As much as I know took me 18 months after 9/11 to get out of denial. There were too many unanswered questions and once I began the hard research, I got sick to my soul. While I have read every book out there on 9/11, in my humble opinion the only two books every American should read about 9/11 are Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert and The Terror Timeline by Paul Thompson.

9/11 -- The Gift That Keeps on Giving
Nice to see our friends over at the Bulldog Manifesto feeling the frustration that comes with 9/11 and this administration. Sorry for the language, but that's the reality of frustration.
So what if the Bush administration wants to conduct illegal wiretaps, they are fighting the terrorists!
So what if the Bush administration wants to attack a country that has never attacked us and was not a threat to us, they are fighting the terrorists!
So what if the Bush administration wants to take away all my liberties, they are fighting the terrorists!
