Bob Herbert (if anything) understates it

Someone needed to say this in the MSM:

"The Bushies will tell you that it is dangerous and even against the law to inquire into these nefarious activities. We just have to trust the king.

"Well, I give you fair warning. This is a road map to totalitarianism. Hallmarks of totalitarian regimes have always included an excessive reliance on secrecy, the deliberate stoking of fear in the general population, a preference for military rather than diplomatic solutions in foreign policy, the promotion of blind patriotism, the denial of human rights, the curtailment of the rule of law, hostility to a free press, and the systematic invasion of the privacy of ordinary people."
