LONG LIVE DOMESTIC SPYING!
To keep up with U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham‘s logic, you’ve got to be able to run around in circles … really, really fast .
Seriously … one week Graham wants to bomb one group, the next week he wants to bomb another. And it’s always in response to some totally ridiculous fearmongering.
“I think of an American city in flames because of the terrorists’ ability to operate in Syria and Iraq,” Graham said recently.
Syria, of course, is where Graham and his fellow whore for the military-industrial complex, John McCain, have been supporting radical jihadists linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (for more on their support of these fighters, click HERE and HERE).
Last year Graham said we had to help those jihadists because if we didn’t, Iran would nuke the Port of Charleston. Now Graham says we should ally with Iran in order to stop the spread of ISIS jihadists in Iraq.
Whew … dizzy?
Anyway Graham is now using all the ISIS fearmongering as an excuse to build support for the federal government’s domestic spying program. In fact he told reporter Alex Seitz-Wald of MSNBC that if the ISIS threat didn’t make people rethink their views on Edward Snowden and the NSA, “they’re crazy.”
Lindsey Graham just now: If ISIS doesn't make people rethink post-Snowden anti-NSA sentiment, "they're crazy."

Well, well …
With all due respect to Graham – a special interest whore, fiscal liberal, Obama abettor, neo-fascist, friend of terrorists, thief of your liberty, fraud and hypocrite – he’s the last person who needs to be calling anyone else crazy.
What’s crazy? Invading everybody under the Middle Eastern sun and expecting them to leave us alone …
