Defeating the Bill of Rights: Bush’s Lone Victory, by Paul Craig Roberts (CounterPunch, 22 Nov. 2006), who was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan and is a former Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page, denounces this administration’s disregard for law and civil liberties. Roberts starts out with a reference to George Orwell and ends with this:
Americans should be roused to fury that attorney general Alberto Gonzales and vice president Cheney have condemned the defense of American civil liberty as “a grave threat to US security.” This blatant use of an orchestrated and propagandistic fear to create a “national security” wedge against the Bill of Rights is an impeachable offense.
Mark my words, the future of civil liberty in the US depends on the impeachment and conviction of Bush, Cheney, and Gonzales.
