The Wall Street Journal has a piece today on the ACLU’s despicable acts in surreptitiously photographing CIA agents and giving the pictures to Al Qaeda members for future “attention”. The ACLU sees nothing wrong with its actions and of course no parallel to the Valerie Plame incident, but then, this is the same group who yesterday expressed dissatisfaction with a mere “investigation” into alleged claims of CIA abuse of terrorists and insisted on “the immediate commencement of prosecution.”
Those of you with warm, fuzzy memories of the ACLU defending civil liberties: banning crucifixes, say, or defending the rights of child pornographers, might wonder at this new attitude of prosecute first, investigate later, but if so, you’ve missed the steady transformation of the organization into a hate America crusade. Since 9/11 the ACLU, clearly convinced that we deserved everything that came our way that day, has worked diligently against our interests and for Al Qaeda’s. I’m glad to live in a country where we allow traitors to speak their minds openly and without fear of retribution, but I will admit to doing a slow burn as these idiots luxuriate in that freedom while striving to destroy it. Odd ducks.
