ACLU Caught in Massive Coverup while Suing US for Wiretapping
Left Wing Hate Website ^ | 1-17-2006 | Thanatos

Posted on 01/17/2006 8:01:45 AM PST by Thanatos

The ACLU had announced on Tuesday, November 16, 1999 that it will create a website called "www.echelonwatch.org". This website would chronicle all uses of the Planetary Evesdropping system used by the United States to monitor Phone Calls, Cell Phones, Satellite Communications around the world. This is the "NSA Evesdropping" system that's in the news today.

The ACLU had an extensive Library of documents, archives, news articles, links to congressional testimony and was the place to go for this information. That is until now. The ACLU is deleting all this information off the website. It had chronicled all this information and is now hiding it from the public.

Why?

This is probably the reason: NSA Spying on Americans Is Illegal (12/29/2005)

On December 29, 2005, the ACLU decided to jump on the "Let's get Bush Impeached" bandwagon and published this ad in the NY Times:

ACLU Hate Bush Ad published in NY Times 12/29/2005

Today, January 17, 2006, the ACLU Filed suit in Federal Court in two cities to "Stop" the United States from intercepting communications From international Terrorist calling their allies within the United States.

ACLU sues to stop domestic spying program

Why would the ACLU delete their extensive website on Project Echelon? The answer is simple, they are arguing that all this "Spying on American Citizens" started with the Bush Administration, they do not want evidance unearthed that proves that the Clinton Administration and every Administration has used these "Wiretaps" to protect American Citizens since the invention of the Telephone.

And no, Al Gore did not Invent the Telephone.. No matter what he says, he didn't.

Well I don't know what you think is missing, but the link I gave you is the current ACLU EchelonWatch site. It has all sorts of info and links to more info, including older stuff like this. What exactly are you looking for? This or what?

Famous Quote: "Those that refuse to Learn from their past are condemmed to repeat it".

Liberal Interpretation of the Quote: "Why learn from the past when we can just rewrite it to suit our purposes"
