Consistency from the Left?

Perish the thought!

Take the recent "scandal" over President Bush's authorization of wire taps against Americans and foreigners suspected of having ties to terrorist groups. The usual suspects (The New York Times, the ACLU, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats) are up in arms over this egregious violation of civil rights.

I mean a Democratic president would never resort to such patently illegal and unconstitutional tactics, right?

Thanks to Lorie Byrd at for this link to this piece on The American Thinker website.

Have you ever heard of a surveillance program called Echelon? It's the Big Brother-ish program whereby the NSA could and did monitor all telephone calls and e-mails around the world. (Unknown to most, the British and several other key allies participate in Echelon.)

I'll give you three quesses who authorized Echelon, and the first two don't count.
