>A prominent leftist blogger associated with Salon.com has proudly accepted an award named for Soviet agent of influence I.F. Stone and has denounced Accuracy in Media and Commentary magazine, which is an upstanding blog and a credit to America, for drawing public attention to Stone’s communist connections.
Glenn Greenwald and fellow award winner, Amy Goodman, appeared on the April 3 edition of a public television show hosted by Bill Moyers, just weeks after new disclosures of how Moyers used his position as a top official of the Democratic Lyndon Johnson Administration to gather political dirt and potential blackmail material on American citizens. One of Greenwald’s big complaints about the Bush Administration has been that it illegally monitored telephone calls as part of the war on terrorism.
What comes around goes around — and both parties are complicit. One wonders who in the Obama administration is digging up dirt about us? A better question is who isn’t?
We know the Janet Napolitano flak about how she is attacking all war veterans, conservatives, people over 70, and others, branding them as enemies of the state. We also know that the NSA is listening in on phone conversations, trying to expose and prosecute anyone who may make a disparging remark about Obama and his gang. Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Well, the latter is where we are headed, especially if Obama continues to allow this kind of nonsense to happen.
Must Americans live in fear? It could get worse. He could name the former Arizona governor and current Homeland Security Agency head, Napalitano, to the Supreme Court.
