Why Does Accountability Hate America?

October 10th, 2007at 06:26pm Posted by Eli

Those wild-eyed hippies at the ACLU ask:

Why is the president of the United States trying to get the telecommunications companies off the hook for their illegal activity? He is supposed to be upholding laws, not encouraging companies to break them. Businesses that break the law should be held accountable. We expect these companies to keep our personal information private, and if they break the law, there should be consequences – not a re-write of the rule book.

It’s very simple, really. Denying the telecoms immunity for breaking the law at the president’s behest would have an unacceptable chilling effect on potential accomplices down the road. I mean, who’s going to want to help him out if they have to worry about going to jail or paying crippling fines? He’d never be able to get anything done!

Sure, Dubya took care of Scooter Libby, but can a president commute a civil suit, or pardon a corporation? Apparently not, or it would have already happened.

Remember: Accountability = Death. If we don’t allow the president and his henchman to act with total impunity, the terrorists will have won.
