The Rockefeller Memo

There is something so sad about Rockefeller's memo - like a silent prayer in response to a hideous double-bind. If he goes public he will be branded as violating national security; if he keeps silent he won't be able to sleep at night. So he furtively scribbles out his objections in order to confirm his own conscience, but without any realistic hope of having any impact. And Keeping a copy as insurance against being implicated himself.

Pathetic. This is what the Bush doctrine does to people - turns them into scared little moles squirreling away their better natures.

I agree, however, Rockefeller should have known better. He should have let us in on this. What are they going to do, prosecute him for revealing the that the president is a criminal? I doubt it. Let them try.

It's a shame that the Dems who knew didn't do something sooner. Official secrets cannot be used to cover up a crime. Had Bush robbed a bank, do you think he could have briefed them on the heist saying "of course this is all secret?" Of course not. The fact that the president broke the law is the only fact that Rockefeller needed to spill. Letting those tapped know that their 4th Ammd. rights are being shit on is not a crime, no matter what the president might think he's not a king.

Of course they can still prosecute Rockefeller. Look at what this corrupt group is doing now. They are breaking the law, flaunting it, and saying they will continue to do so. They impeached Clinton for lying about getting some action on the side. You think they won't do their best to bring Jay down?
