God Bless Orrin Hatch ... Defending The Bush FISA, and Telcom Amnesty, He Indicts The Bush Grindhouse

Watching the FISA debate on C-Span 2, and Senator Chris Dodd's filibuster, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), in growing passion, and increasing fearmongering, is defending the Bush Grindhouse in their practice of illegal wiretapping, and their call for immunity for the Telcom accomplices.

In his rambling, Hatch, citing the danger of lawsuits from citizens who have been illegally wiretapped, that it would put our national security in jeopardy, that it would expose classified information, offered this gem, something that fits like a glove to the Bush Cronies;

"There are people in this country who just love to expose classified information, regardless of who it harms ..."
Sound like, if they win their appeal, the Wilson's will have to subpoena Senator Hatch, to see what he knows about who loved to expose Valerie Plame, former covert CIA agent.

Heck, there's probably some tapes sitting in the NSA (unless they've adopted the CIA practice of destroying them) on it ...

Ahh, such irony.
