For the latest on the disgusting persecution of Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos, please read this story. Undoubtedly acting on orders from above -- and we all know what ultra-high-level individual has sold his soul to illegal Mexican immigrants and the crooked Mexican government -- officials of the so-called "Department of Homeland Security" (itself one of the biggest governmental boondoggles in modern history) feel free to lie to members of congress who are trying to get to the bottom of this sorry mess.
If the smarmy allegations of the DHS brass had any validity, you can be damn certain they would have been brought out in the agents' trial. Somehow, they were not mentioned.
I find it fascinating that the trial hinged on the "sworn" testimony of the drug-toting illegal himself. There can be only one reason for that, and it has nothing to do with the truth.
A little hint of where the real blame lies came at a White House press briefing last week. Bush's mouthpiece, Tony Snow, was obviously caught off-guard when a reporter asked if George Bush would pardon Compean and Ramos, and responded (if you can call it that) in a negative, hostile way that attacked the reporter and did not (of course) answer the question at all. Obviously, American citizens are putting some pressure on Bush to reverse his current course and, for once, do the right thing. The pressure must be getting to Bush's P.R. pimp, too.
While I'm adding people to the s*** list on this issue, I can't leave out Bill O'Reilly. Once, I liked him, thought he was, if nothing else, intellectually honest. Then he turned his major efforts to plugging his books and whining about how he's a target of so much abuse.
Well, here's a little more abuse for you, Mr "No Spin." A caller to O'Reilly's radio show wanted to talk about Compean and Ramos. O'Reilly (of course) knows everything about the case and, since "the folks" (a term I have come to despise after hearing him use it incessantly) convicted the two agents, he's sure they're guilty.
What if "the folks" convicted them on perjured testimony and lies offered up by the prosecutors, Bill? Couldn't you stop being a cheap hustler and blowhard for a moment and do some serious investigating?
Naaah. It's so much easier to spend your time babbling about "secular progressives" and "culture wars," isn't it?
Doesn't matter to me. I wasn't ever what you'd call a consistent listener/viewer, but after this bit of total idiocy, I won't bother with this particular slimy hack again at all.
There is an ever-lengthening list of people who should pay with their jobs (and, perhaps, their very liberty) for having tossed Compean and Ramos over the side to appease Mexico and the open-borders crowd. From the president and his Attorney General right down to a tinhorn local prosecutor willing to do their bidding, there is plenty of blame to go around.
It is time to hold all of these "folks" accountable.
