"Let Me Give You An Example"

The boys and girls of the W, Rove and Co have been trying so darned hard at trying to link Saddam and OBL that they can't separate the two in their own minds even though the American people are not so foolish that they believe them. Instead of an example that is powerful, W gives us a very revealing Freudian slip:
Let me give you an example about my concerns about letting the enemy know what may or may not be happening. In the late 1990s, our government was following Osama bin Laden because he was using a certain type of telephone. And then the fact that we were following Osama bin Laden because he was using a certain type of telephone made it into the press as the result of a leak. And guess what happened? Saddam -- Osama bin Laden changed his behavior. He began to change how he communicated.

A: Osama, Saddam, George

Q: Three people who don't speak English.

"I authorized the National Security Agency, consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution, to intercept the international communications of people with known links to al Qaeda and related terrorist organizations. Before we intercept these communications, the government must have information that establishes a clear link to these terrorist networks.

"This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security. Its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks against the United States, our friends and allies. Yesterday the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports, after being improperly provided to news organizations. As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have, and the unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk. Revealing classified information is illegal, alerts our enemies, and endangers our country

It's easier for us to spy on people who speak English. So that's what NSA is going to do. It's easy!

If you're speaking one of the other 4000-6000 languages or dialects, you're home free. They'll never figure it out.

So now George is saying to Osama Bin Laden: "Look at this cell phone bill! You expect us to cover that!"
