    In the days after Watergate, the late Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho) led an official investigation into illegal operations of the CIA and FBI. It was called The United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities Ė ďThe Church Committee,Ē for short.

    Church and his colleagues unearthed all manner of lawbreaking, from widespread domestic spying on loyal, law-abiding Liberal Democrats who opposed the war in Vietnam to assassination programs that included hitmen recruited straight from the Mafia. There was nore, even more vile stuff.



    As a result of the Church Committee and the Pike Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, thoroughly covered by DUer bobthedrummer, we learned that some of the most secret and powerful organizations of the United States had been used against the American people.

    One of the things that really shocked Americans, including more than a few reporters, was the extent of illegal domestic spying, infiltration, eavesdropping and disruption. Not many people thought CIA and the FBI would run roughshod over the Constitution. Yet, they did.

    Even more stupid stuff at the linky!!!

    I love these idiots that think using Google makes them super sleuths or something...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    And any of that has what to do with Bush?

    Oh I'm sorry... I forgot that the Bush family is responsible for all evils in between stealing a gumball and the Holocaust.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
