2. seemslikeadream, do you remember that great Senator from Idaho
Frank Church and the Church Committee's 14 reports about the lawlessness and dangers concealed in our national security community? Bear with me, I'm not going off-topic here by bringing this up because James A. Baker III and the same criminals are mentioned throughout the following links and articles. This is what Gerald Ford enabled by pardoning Nixon and bringing Cheney and Rumsfeld and Poppy and Baker et al into his unelected stint as POTUS.

Democrat and military intelligence veteran (in WWII Burma) Frank Church knew, beyond any doubt, what we were facing back in 1975 when he issued this warning in regards to his investigative findings about the NSA:
"I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."

"Back to Church" by Chris Mooney 11-5-2001

Amy Goodman interviewed the Church Committee's chief counsel, Frederick Schwarz, in May of last year.

I hope this New Year gives all of US the ability to do something with all this truth, I sincerely believe that most of the world is teetering at the edge of that "abyss" and that the BFEE will push as many as it is allowed to over it-as it has already done in the past few years.
