Why The Left Wants Surveillance Ended

There has been a lot of discussion about surveillance this week. There are differing opinions about whether it was legal or not. I think that precedent was established when many past Presidents did the same thing under Executive Order and the USC allows it. With the left, precedent only has weight if it means keeping abortion on the books. I have been trying to figure out why the Democrats would want the surveillance to stop. I have also wondered why they are not as hot to pursue the leak as they were in that sham Valerie Plame case. It appear that the reason might be to put the President in danger.

It has been disclosed that al-Qaeda has been plotting to kill President Bush, preferably at the White House. According to the New York Daily News:

Before he was captured last spring, Osama Bin Laden’s top operational commander was solely focused on killing President Bush and Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharaff, the Daily News has learned.

The capture last May of Al Qaeda’s No. 3 leader, Abu Faraj Al-Libi, apparently thwarted plots to assassinate the two partners in the global war on terror, said a senior Pakistani official, whose information was corroborated by two senior U.S. counterterrorism officials.

This is the kind of information we gain by interrogating prisoners without fear of prosecution for some contrived legal charges and it is the kind of information that we get when we listen in on the conversations of terrorists. If we do not listen we will not have important information like this.

It is obvious that since the left has not been able to get Bush they are content on giving the enemy a leg up on the job.
