I really, really hope it’s not true that the ACLU has hired people to take pictures of covert CIA agents and showing them to Gitmo detainees. This isn’t a case of photographers waiting outside Gitmo with huge telephoto lenses like a bunch of UFO hunters outside Area 51. In some cases, the ACLU’s people took photos of the agents at their own homes.
If it is true, then the ACLU has committed an act of espionage, and I really have no idea whether they did it out of malice or galaxy-sized ignorance and arrogance.
What better way for the Left to show its true stripes than to share classified information and photos of undercover CIA officers with Gitmo detainees.
But, hey, don’t you dare question their love of country. After all, endangering America is the ultimate form of dissent!
Sister Toldjah isn’t waiting for the left, who you’ll remember were crying treason over the supposed outing of Valerie Plame, to get very exorcised about this.
John Stephenson notes that the ACLU wasn’t all that interested when they had the choice of protecting our privacy or raising money for themselves. We also learned not that long ago that the ACLU’s official policy now is we should trust our government completely.
I guess they’re only the guardians of our civil liberties when it suits them and, these days, it doesn’t suit them very much at all. I think it’s safe to say that they’ve gone far beyond disagreement at this point. They’re working for the other side.
