NSA surveillance scandal goes full tilt clown

Peter King (R-NY)
nypost.com

The domestic eavesdropping scandal is now entering week three in the news (it's existed for real a lot longer) and as these things tend to do, the political posturing is headed into Clownland.

Yesterday, Congressman Peter King (R-NY) demanded that UK Guardian journalist (and attorney) Glenn Greenwald be arrested. Not because of anything Greenwald has done, but because Greenwald is threatening to expose CIA assets around the world (Greenwald denies this). Odd that a lawmaker wouldn't be able to make this distinction and even odder that when a CIA asset was actually exposed in rhe last decade (by an employee of the Bush Administration), King wasn't this vociferous.Greenwald, fairly consistent on the matter of civil liberties, is a pretty bright guy and snarkily responded that King's newfound enthusiasm for prosecuting terrorists is somewhat of a joke. King has been a long time supporter of the IRA. You'd think that as a congressman whose Long Island district was impacted hard by 9/11 would be fairly tough on domestic terror, but it hasn't hurt King electorally at all.

For two reasons. One is the obvious one--The IRA's membership does bear a strong physical resemblance to King's constituency, ie, both white and not Muslim, ergo, not terrorists. The second is that the IRA doesn't bomb New York. London, yes, Manhattan, no. In fact, the US has been a source of IRA cash, donated by people that don't see the group as terrorists.

Roll that over in your head. The US doesn't meddle in the affairs of Northern Ireland by planting military bases there (there has been a slight flap over the use of Irish airports for US military purposes). Mostly, American involvement has been muted and even handed, especially in the late 90's. Therefore the IRA has never attacked the US. Which wouldn't be all that difficult, given the huge number of Irish-Americans and the ease that an IRA asset or two could fit in.

Because the US doesn't militarily meddle in Ireland's affairs, The IRA has no interest in America. 

Perhaps if the same philosophy extended to the Middle East, eh? Nah, better that the clown show go into overdrive, right?

on the entire island of Ireland. The 6 counties referred to as "Northern Ireland" are an artificial construct imposed by an imperialist power. It's all moot anyway - the border between the 26 and 6 counties has totally disappeared and cross-border institutions are strong and growing stronger. The day of Irish unity is coming closer, far more quickly than many of us predicted.

Ireland and then later referred to "Irish airports" and "Ireland". You didn't differentiate the two and implied that they were one and the same.

Ireland is both a country and a nation. Northern Ireland is a country within the nation of the United Kingdom.

The fact that the IRA disbanded 8 years ago and/or that lots of Americans supported the IRA doesn't do anything to change King's hypocrisy (Greenwald and Johnny's point). There's also "support" and then there's comparing Gerry Adams, the leader of Sinn Fein, to George Washington! This is the same guy who says Obama needs to use the word "terrorism" more so the public will understand the seriousness of that tactic.

Posted by Cybesq on Jun. 13, 2013 @ 1:52 pm

The IRA was NEVER listed as a terrorist group by the US State Department, even today it's not. Therefore supporting the political aims of Sinn Fein, a party which has national representation throughout the whole of Ireland (the only Irish party to do so) is not tantamount to supporting terrorism in the same way supporting al Queda is.

The British DID consider George Washington a terrorist BTW.

Posted by Lucretia Snapples on Jun. 13, 2013 @ 5:36 pm

He used violence to overthrow the government of the day.

The only reason that we do not regard him as a terrorist is because he just happened to end up on the winning side.

As Goerring said at the Nurmeburg war crimes trial, it is history that decides who is guilty and who is innocent.

An act of terror is one directed at a civilian population with the intent of winning a political victory.

What civilian population did George Washington target? British loyalists/soldiers?

Posted by Cybesq on Jun. 14, 2013 @ 10:54 am

Terrorism is often targeted at the police or military, as an attempt to weaken or intimidate a government of the day.

By your argument, there can be no terrorism against anyone who wears a uniform. That's convenient for you because it omits probably half of all the terror incidents we have seen globally.

The Black Panthers targeted the police in the Bay Area some fifty years ago, and I think that most people would categorize them as terrorists. Likewise suicide bombers who attack US troops.

Posted by Guest on Jun. 14, 2013 @ 11:15 am

If anything I would say most people's use of the term is bogus and self-serving but never more so than when coming from the mouth of Peter King and people like him. When speaking out of one side of his mouth, he was fully supportive of a terrorist organization (that meets both of our definitions) and then wants to lecture the President on the topic, choosing contrived semantics over the substance.

I would agree with Bruce Hoffman, "terrorism is a pejorative term. It is a word with intrinsically negative connotations that is generally applied to one's enemies and opponents, or to those with whom one disagrees and would otherwise prefer to ignore. (...) Hence the decision to call someone or label some organization 'terrorist' becomes almost unavoidably subjective, depending largely on whether one sympathizes with or opposes the person/group/cause concerned. If one identifies with the victim of the violence, for example, then the act is terrorism. If, however, one identifies with the perpetrator, the violent act is regarded in a more sympathetic, if not positive (or, at the worst, an ambivalent) light; and it is not terrorism."
