Connecting the Dots

Here in the United States of Amnesia the journalist can't seem to hold a thought for ten minutes, or leap the intuitive gap between A and B. The latest proof of this is the fact that nobody seems to be connecting the Plame case to the domestic spying scandal. The Plame/Traitorgate Affair shows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this administration will aggressively gather and disseminate intelligence on its perceived enemies, even and perhaps especially among the citizenry. They cannot be trusted to keep even classified information, and they certainly can't be trusted to surveil secretly, utterly without accountability, anybody they care to.

But, the rainbow coalition of Mr. Gonzales, Mr. Yoo and Ms. Rice are all out there arguing that W, the Great White Father, must be trusted to perform warrantless searches, to dispense with habeas corpus, and to answer nobody, ever, in the cause of saving American freedoms. Sometimes I really wish I could believe in Hell.
