Democrat’s New Spy Bill – Lulling Americans Into False Sense of Security
20 Mar 2008
The war on terror and the war on freedom are nonpartisan issues. Both Democrats and Republicans alike have consistently voted for legislation that, through the illusion of protecting our families and our homeland, have actually removed critical components of the U.S. Constitution.

Action Alert: Why Are Winter Soldiers Not News?
20 Mar 2008
[reposted from FAIR.org: http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=3318]
