Top Ten People w/ “Links” to Al Qaeda

Posted by on December 20 at 15:10 PM

I’ll start the list with ACLU executive director Anthony D. Romero. The evidence is in today’s NYT:

Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union, questioned whether the administration was criticizing the warrant system because cases in which the National Security Agency focused on Americans would not have met the standard of proof for intelligence warrants, which requires that the surveillance target be linked to a foreign terrorist group.

“It’s insufficient to simply take at face value the president’s claim that these people under surveillance by the N.S.A. had known links to terrorism,” Mr. Romero said in an interview. “This entire program makes a mockery of our system of checks and balances.”

Please add names.
