Al Gore in the heights of Hypocracy will be making a challenge to rendition which pur terrorists in countries that would torture them (something the clinton administration started as a process) and domestic eavesdropping ( something bill clinton did on political and economic targets but not on terrorist targets) and reprise his angry man speech face.
Human Events online has the scoop.
“The speech will specifically point to domestic wiretapping and torture as examples of the administration’s efforts to extend executive power beyond Congressional direction and judicial review,” according to a MoveOn.org press release. “The extent of bipartisan concern over these issues is highlighted by former Republican Rep. Bob Barr’s introduction of the Vice President and by the organizations cosponsoring the speech.”
You see I had some respect for Bob Barr speaking out as a civil libertarian. But I am pretty sure Bob would have remembered back in congress when the Clinton administration was doing the same thing.
But this proves that in the case of Barr it is more about getting the Win at any cost. and that is dispicable.
for ALGORE… I am surprised a man who plans to run for President in 08 is willing to take this gamble.
