John Snow Says Program Tracking Millions of Financial Transactions Is Vital to War on Terrorism

By JEANNINE AVERSA AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON Jun 23, 2006 (AP) Treasury Secretary John Snow on Friday said a program tracking millions of financial transactions was not invasion of privacy of Americans but “government at its best” and vital to the war on terrorism.

Snow told a news conference the program, run by the CIA and overseen by the Treasury Department, was “responsible government, it’s effective government, it’s government that works.”

“It’s entirely consistent with democratic values, with our best legal traditions,” Snow said.

The once-secret program, which has been going on since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, has drawn protests from Democrats in Congress, who said it raises concerns about intrusions on privacy and who saw it as the latest step in an aggressive Bush administration expansion of executive-branch powers.

Snow defended the newly disclosed program, saying it was an effective tool in tracking the financial operations of terrorists.

“By following the money we’ve been able to locate operatives, we’ve been able to locate their financiers, we’ve been able to chart the terrorist networks and we’ve been able to bring the terrorists to justice,” he said.

“If people are sending money to help al-Qaida, we want to know about it,” Snow said.

Lets take this to the final conclusion. The riteous seeking vengeance, having nothing left but their bare hands, band together into kidnapping groups, dedicated to renditioning american men women and children and cutting their heads off with knives in groups of no less than twenty three at a time in front of a mini HD camera, the footage then getting posted on the interweb, complete with rousing male chorus music.What are you going to do about that?

The whole idea that drives these people is to take vengeance, to get payback, blood for blood. They can do this with kitchen knives. No american will be safe on any street anywhere.

For the one thousandth time, if you want to end all of this, KNOCK IT OFF and get out of the affairs of these idiots who are ruining our party! Go cold turkey with the oil addiction. Forget nukular weapons spending and put all your money into renewable energy.
In the end, it will all seem like a bad dream, and we will never have to deal with them again.
