Consider the source of Ashcroft criticism

The current uproar about our civil liberties being destroyed by Attorney General John Ashcroft is a great piece of hypocrisy (considering the source). Where were these champions of American liberty when the Clinton administration tried to dismantle the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights for eight years?

Islamic fanatics have marked every American within their reach for execution. I hope that some of you out there don’t have to stare death in the face before you figure out who the enemy is.
