Who Exactly Should Feel Ashamed Shrub?

WaPo reports:
"This is a different era, a different war," the president said at a year-end news conference in the East Room. "People are changing phone numbers and phone calls, and they're moving quick. And we've got to be able to detect and prevent. I keep saying that, but this . . . requires quick action."
Yep especially those criminal Quakers and Greenpeace! Right Shrub because, Lord knows they are right up their on your enemies.... I mean terror watch list! Is there anyone left in this country, that has three operative brain cells, who believes this clown anymore? Are you that stupid, gullible, mean- spirited, or just hate democracy so much that you are willing to still be doing shooters with this guy?
"I want senators from New York or Los Angeles or Las Vegas to go home and explain why these cities are safer," Bush said. "It is inexcusable to say, on the one hand, 'connect the dots' and not give us a chance to do so."
Wow how full of dung can one person be? If this was so right, if this was so just then why in the hell am I reading in the L.A. Times today that:
The New York Times first debated publishing a story about secret eavesdropping on Americans as early as last fall, before the 2004 presidential election.

But the newspaper held the story for more than a year and only revealed the secret wiretaps last Friday, when it became apparent a book by one of its reporters was about to break the news, according to journalists familiar with the paper's internal discussions.

Both of the journalists said they thought that Times editors were overly cautious in holding the story for more than a year. But they said they thought the delays appeared to be in good faith, with the editors taking to heart the national security concerns raised by the Bush administration.
Concerns about National Security? Bullshit! Concerns about the elections? Definetly. As far as the New York Time' s editors whining:
"You are damned if you do and damned if you don't," said Okrent, who often wrote critical reviews of the Times before leaving in May to write a book. "For the right, this information never should have come out. And for the left, it never could have come out early enough."
Guess it sucks to be "The Paper of Record", huh? Perhaps it wasn't "Fit to Print"? Thank you for turning a once proud paper into a doorstop rag.
