The clock is running, Ms. Pelosi
Anybody out there have any idea whether any foreign radical Islamists contacted any of their allies today to discuss another terror attack on U.S. soil today? Thanks to Nancy Pelosi, as of last night, we legally cannot eavesdrop on these types of communications any longer without a prior court order.
Quite correct. In spite of Pelosi’s defenders’ comments, the reality of the situation is that the terrorists have been granted a “golden hour” that they would have been completely unable to bring about on their own. Their communications now stand completely protected against what might arguably be the best interception apparatus on the planet and if they’re smart (and they are, if the words of the people actually in this fight are to be trusted) they’ll be making full use of this window to communicate information they’ve been too scared to share up to now. They’ll know this situation won’t remain in place but it’s available now.
The worst part of this is precisely what Duane spotlights. This isn’t a situation where the resolution – already passed by the Senate – would fail in the House. Members of the House stood ready to pass it. Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic leadership have taken it upon themselves to disallow a vote on the matter, regardless of the chances of passage. And it is they who are responsible for the terror activity that is no doubt being advanced as you read this. I’d like to think that my fellow Americans of whatever political stripe would be aware enough to take note of this. I also hope they’re responsible enough to do something about it this year.
