Maybe this is going to have to be a regular feature from me. I have an extremely low tolerance for traitors, unpatriotic behavior and treasonous acts. Senator Patrick Leahy is 3-0 on all of those.
I saw an article today from the AP Wire (yeah I know, hard to trust, but they seem to be everywhere) and they had some news on the Blackwater USA shooting that took place in Baghdad. And as Senate Judiciary Chairman, Senator Leahy that it wise to open his yap and say the following:
"In this administration, accountability goes by the boards," said Leahy. "That goes equally for misconduct and for incompetence. If you get caught, they will get you immunity. If you get convicted, they will commute your sentence."
Patrick Leahy needs to STFU, now. If I was a US Attorney, I would make it my mission in life before I retired from Federal service to see him doing the perp-walk in an orange jumpsuit. I wouldn't elect this ass-hat to be dog-catcher.
Among his notable accomplishments while in office:
Opposed U.S. military support for the Contras in their fight against the Marxist Sandinistas Opposed the 1991 Persian Gulf War Voted against funding the post-9/11 invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq Voted against protecting U.S. military personnel from the International Criminal Court
Calls Guantanamo Bay detention center "an international embarrassment to our nation, to our ideals and it remains a festering threat to our security. . . . We're the country that tells people that we adhere to the rule of law. We want other countries to adhere to the rule of law. And in Guantanamo, we are not."
And as it is noted in DiscoverTheNetworks.org
According to a 1987 San Diego Union-Tribune report, in a 1985 television appearance Leahy disclosed classified information that one of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's telephone conversations had been intercepted. The information that Leahy revealed had been used in the operation to capture the Arab terrorists who had hijacked the Achille Lauro cruise ship and killed American citizens, and the Union-Tribune claimed that Leahy's indiscretion may have cost the life of at least one of the Egyptian operatives involved in that operation.
As well as...
In 1987, The Washington Times reported that Leahy had also leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to overthrow Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Leahy allegedly had said, "I thought [the operation] was probably the most ridiculous thing I had seen, and also the most irresponsible," and had threatened to expose the operation to CIA Director William Casey. A few weeks later, details of the plan appeared in The Washington Post, and the operation was canceled.
I could just go on, and on.... And I will...
