Just Because It Is Criminal Does it mean it is a crime???

And should we be in any way surprised?
The FBI improperly and, in some cases, illegally used the USA Patriot Act to secretly obtain personal information about people in the US, a justice department audit found today.

According to the highly critical 126-page report, FBI agents sometimes demanded the information without proper authorisation and at times improperly obtained telephone records in circumstances that were not emergencies.

It blamed agent error and shoddy record-keeping for most of the problems - and did not find any indication of criminal misconduct - but has confirmed the worst fears of civil liberties groups on the use of the so-called national security letters.

[ cf FBI abused Patriot Act powers, audit finds
( emphasis Mine, for Comedic Purposes ONLY, and should not be used to indicate internal inconsistancies in the actual position that may or may not be held by the regime, as it is not yet clear that the regime has now, or at any time, past or future, been aware of it's own existence, the exitence of any Laws, Or any reality exterior to the one that they have always believed was the Divine Mandate Of The Divine Decider. ) ]
Gosh, it is as if it were friday, and the regime were dumping all of it's dirty laundry onto the main stream press, hoping that no one will really notice....

Besides, by monday, who will remember any of these strories... And OF COURSE Faux News will help everyone understand that it is not really like as if there is a crime here, since, well, just because it is criminal does it really mean it is a crime if it is done in the Name of The Argument From Intelligent Design and the Divine Deciding of The Divine Decider...

All Hail The Great Pumpkin, for he brings presents to children who believe, really BELIEVE!!!
