Peter King Makes It More Clear He’s Targeting the AP, Not Leakers
A real member of Congress might worry that the government is using double agents to expand wars in other countries without briefing the Gang of Eight, as required by law.
Not Peter King. He wants to investigate the AP’s sources–but not, apparently, ABC’s–to find out how the press learned something that had not been briefed properly.
Also: Peter King doesn’t believe in scaring the American people. Just ginning up fear about one religion or ethnic group.
Why do I get the sense that Ray Kelly is whispering in Peter King’s ear?
I’d really like to see King investigated. I’m sure he’s done things that are illegal since he’s been in Congress, because he’s a Republican and they all are criminals. [/snark]
BTW I found the source of Peter King’s statistics about American Muslim organizations. It’s truly paranoid stuff http://www.reocities.com/CapitolHill/Senate/8841/statedept.txt
