President Obama's counterterrorism chief acknowledged Saturday that the country is safer since the attacks of September 11, 2001, saying that government actions have made the nation "less hospitable" to terrorism. But he also called some of the precautions taken after the attacks "over the top".
John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, told Islamic law students at NYU that the Bush administration, "deserves a lot of praise and credit for the work they did after 9/11 as far as making this country safer and stronger," but countered that statement by saying that prejudice and discrimination have threatened national security. "Over the years the actions of our own government have at times perpetuated those attitudes: violations of the patriot act, surveillance that has been excessive, policies perceived as profiling, over-inclusive no fly lists subjecting law-abiding individuals to unnecessary searches and inconvenience." He promised the largely Muslim audience that the Obama administration strives to make civil rights and civil liberties a priority.

Auster's First Law of Minority Relations: "The worse any designated minority or alien group behaves in a liberal society, the bigger become the lies of Political Correctness in covering up for that group."
And, the corrolary: "The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that groups bad behavior."

Brennan is not fired yet? =.=
Oh yeah, Brennan? The government perpetuated prejudice and discrimination? You really meant to say the “Bush Administration perpetuated,” didn’t you? Otherwise, why emphasize that the Obama Administration makes civil liberties/rights a priority?
Brennan, do you realize that the Obama Administration makes civil liberties/rights a priority for TERRORISTS?!
The country’s safer, huh? That’s right. It is. And do you know WHY that is, Brennan, you shmuck?! Because the Bush Administration didn’t make civil liberties/rights a priority for TERRORISTS!
The Bush Admin said, “You terrorize us, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS!”
Perhaps, Brennan, you shmuck, your priorities are all screwed up. Why don’t you make RESIGNING your priority?
What has this a$$hat been smoking?
