Congress is Safe, but You Are Not

This is Steven Petrick Posting.

Congress has decided that it is time once again to engage in political theater, allowing them from the safety of the halls of Congress to beat their chests and tell the American people how it is they, and they alone, who are preserving our freedoms. They will do this by attacking the agencies the try to keep tabs on violent foreigners who wish to do us harm.

The result will be greater restrictions on what the CIA can do to learn what our foes intend. Greater restrictions on the operations of the FBI. Fear for their careers by people in authority in those organizations, making them risk adverse.

And when more Americans are killed by a surprise terrorist assault, Congress will once more absolve itself of all blame and and point its finger at those organizations designed to defend us which they, in the name of defending us, have gutted to the point of being nothing more than workfare.
