President Bush is guilty of terrorism

Keith Olbermann MSNBC commentator

Keith Olbermann a MSNBC commentator has declared that President Bush is guilty of terrorism because of his warrentless eavesdropping program.

The Senate-passed eavesdropping measure unlike the earlier House-passed bill gives telecommunications company’s protection from privacy lawsuits for helping Bush conduct wiretapping without court warrants after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

In a scathing commentary against President George W. Bush, MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann declared Bush guilty of terrorism for playing what he sees as the fear card in an attempt to get the House to pass retroactive immunity for telecommunication companies that illegally helped the US government in its warrantless wiretapping program Thursday evening.

“You are a liar, Mr. Bush, and after showing some skill at it, you have ceased to even be a very good liar,” Keith Olbermann declared.

“The lot of you,” he said, speaking of those who sought to pass immunity, “are the symbolic descendants of the despotic middle managers of some banana republic, to whom ‘Freedom’ is an ironic brand name, a word you reach for, when you want to get away with its opposite.” Keith Olbermann added.

He also called Bush a fascist,

“If you believe in the seamless mutuality of government and big business – come out and say it!” he said. “There is a dictionary definition, one word that describes that toxic blend. You’re a fascist – get them to print you a T-shirt with “fascist” on it! What else is this but fascism?”
