none so blind

All I can do is guess that sheer dislike for George Bush blinds some of the left to todays reality. We, not for our actions but because we exist, are the target of of a vast zealot conspiracy to change the world to a Muslim theocracy. When presented with this concept the reply often is that it is no different from Christian or Mormon zealotry, equating peaceful suasion with terrorist acts of murder. The believers in this sophistry , like pacifists, feel morally superior to the benighted herd that does not agree. Consider , the terrorists who would gladly murder them feel morally superior also for they are doing God's will. It always is amazing to me, an atheist, how people can commit heinous acts and feel morally superior because they are doing God's will: just as it amazes me how many may be smugly pacifist , understanding and feel morally superior when others fight and die so they can express themselves as above the fray.

leakers and papers

When puppies are being trained they are taught to go to the paper to leak. It seems the same thing is true of government intelligence people. The latest is somebody in the f b i leaked to the "N Y Daily News" information on an on going investigation involving six foreign governments. I hope there is an investigation into this leak at least as thorough as the valerie plame political leak. This leaker has damaged relations with governments aiding us in the fight on terrorists and compromised the rest of the investigation by warning other conspirators of their peril......The leaker has committed an offense against me, my family, and his country. I assume his only motive was vanity but whatever prompted the action it should be punished by dismissal and jail. Twenty years would be appropriate and might stop further idiot actions.
