John Culberson Loves Ben Franklin. Foreigners, Not So Much.
U.S. Congressman John Culberson, 7th District of Texas, sent out a note this afternoon reporting that the “Democrat led Congress has finally passed a responsible Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, (FISA), that President Bush can sign.”
His note also included this snappy statement: “I am not worried about the rights of foreigners in foreign countries who talk about killing Americans through acts of terror.”
Oh my. Can you spell Abu Ghraib?
He also stated: “I believe in Benjamin Franklin’s admonition that someone who would trade a little liberty for a little safety will wind up with neither, so I am always ready to respond if our agencies abuse the rights of Americans, but I have not seen any definitive case of that yet.” — Olivia Flores Alvarez
