"No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine." - - - William Blum

"To paraphrase Karl Rove, Democrats and Republicans have fundamentally different views on national security. For example, Republicans think we should outsource national security to a state used by 9/11 hijackers as an operational and financial base, Democrats think we should not. Democrats have a post-9/11 worldview and many Republicans have a pre-9/11 worldview. Democrats think it is wrong to trust a state that recognized the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan, Republicans think it's right. That doesn't make them unpatriotic but it does make them wrong -- deeply and profoundly and consistently wrong."

--- Bill Burton, communications director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
