View Article  Clinton Plays Politics With National Security

John Spencer has released a new commercial that criticizes Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton for failing to protect Americans.

Please view this hard-hitting and factual ad.  Tell us what you think. 

Please give what you can to support the airing of this ad.

This is one message we must get out to New Yorkers.

It could have been another 9/11.

American civilians flying home, targeted by enemies of freedom, islamic fascists with a sole aim of destroying our way of life.

It was to be a violent terrorist threat, one that British and American intelligence prevented, thanks to parts of the Patriot Act and an NSA program Hillary Clinton didn't want.

National Security Agency wiretaps were vital to detecting a recent terrorist plot to destroy American airliners headed for New York.

But Senator Hillary Clinton opposes the Patriot and the NSA program that helped stop another 911.

Senator Clinton points fingers at the Patriot Act, playing to people's fears over wiretapping.

But it's surveillance that's saving lives, necessary efforts to protect Americans from a real terrorist threat.

Instead, Clinton voted to undermine the NSA and parts of the Patriot Act -- as The Spencer Blog has detailed.

It was her way of appeasing the left-wing of her party, all in preparation for 2008.

Read the statement Senator Clinton put out against The Patriot Act and NSA wiretapping on December 16, 2005 -- just last year -- where she called such important provisions "unnecessary surveillance."

Here is a record of Senator Clinton's vote on that same day against the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005.

It's "politically correct" but Hillary's wrong on national security.

You don't politicize foreign policy.  You don't maniplate homeland security to suit your political ambitions.

John Spencer stated very clearly where he stands.

"I won't play politics with our security."

Hillary plays politics with our safety -- and she would leave us vulnerable.

We can't let Senator Clinton ascend any further.  It's up to us to stop her.

Spencer For U.S. Senate needs your donations, now.

America needs your donations now.

We must stop this pandering to the left, Cinton's betrayal of necessary measures to keep us safe.

We must stop those undermining of our safety.

It's a war, sadly not one ending anytime soon.  It's a war where we must be prepared and responsible.

It's not a war where anyone can play politics with our security.  That's not what a U.S. Senator is supposed to do on the floor of Senate -- or in the court of public opinion.  We need to send a message to Senator Clinton and the rest of those who put politics before our secuirity.

Please support the Spencer campaign to expose Senator Clinton's effort now.

One day after Senator Clinton tossed Joe Lieberman over the side against Ned Lamont, we got a chilling reminder of why we're fighting the war on terrorThe United States cannot withdraw from the world and hide.  Clinton's sitting on the fence in a time of crisis.
 
Clinton plays politics to "anti-war" left-wing extremism -- and hasn't been a leader on national security.  Her endgame is running for the White House in 2008, not focusing on the job of being U.S. Senator for all Americans.
 
Senator Clinton has let down the people of New York.
 
John Spencer has pledged, "I won't play politics with our security."
 
"IT'S A WAR" were the words The New York Post used last week to describe the detection of a terrorist plot to destroy American airliners headed for New York.
As President Bush said (as he has before), America "is safer than it was prior to 9/11" - but "not completely safe. It is a mistake to believe that there is no threat to the United States."
 
As Bush said, America "is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those who love freedom [and] to hurt our nation."
John Spencer knows that The Patriot Act and NSA programs are necessary to keep Americans safe from terrorist threats.
 
Last week again proved the necessity of those precautions, a harrowing reminder that violent terrorist threats do exist --- AND that they must be countered with heightened U.S. intelligence efforts.
 
The President's terrorism adviser Fran Townsend told Larry Kudlow of CNBC that she credits the Patriot Act and National Security Agency wiretapping with helping uncover the plot (CNBC, 8/10).
KUDLOW: All right. The big question I've had--we're going to look at this on the program, and I appreciate your coming on in the beginning of this thing--is do we have the tools here in the United States to succeed in foiling a plot such as the Brits, with respect to NSA, electronic surveillance, with respect to data mining from telephones, with respect to interrogation techniques at Gitmo and the controversies surrounding the Patriot Acts and warrant-less searches, and you know the laundry list as well as I do. Are you satisfied that this country has the necessary tools in this war?

Ms. TOWNSEND: You know, the tools we have today, without them, I don't think we would have been as successful in working with our British colleagues as we were to thwart this plot. You know, five years, many of the tools that you're talking about were not at our disposal.
 
Senator Clinton has continued to consistently oppose National Security Agency wiretapping:
-- Senator Clinton said "I am troubled by recent reports that the President signed an order in 2002 that authorized the National Security Agency to conduct domestic spying on U.S. citizens and foreign nationals in the United States." -- 12/16/05
 
-- The Associated Press said "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday called President Bush's explanations for eavesdropping on domestic telephone calls "strange" and "far-fetched," launching a blistering attack on the White House ahead of the president's State of the Union address" -- 1/25/06
 
-- Despite the fact NSA's terrorist surveillance stopped an Al Qaeda plan to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge, Senator Clinton still attacked it in fundraising letters to the far left-wing as '"a secret program that spies on Americans." -- 12/30/05
 
-- Senator Clinton has also played politics with the Patriot Act.
 
Immediately after 9/11,  she voted for it. Then, feeling heat from the far left-wing, she opposed Patriot Act renewal. -- Roll Call 358,12/16/05
But after vigorous criticism by John Spencer, Senator Clinton flip flopped to vote for a watered down version.
 
John Spencer commented on Clinton's continues hypocrisies.
"Islamic fascists want to kill us because of what we believe in; tolerance for all faiths, dignity for women and democracy," said Spencer. "I support the Patriot Act and the NSA's terrorist surveillance to detect and defeat attacks. I will not play politics with national security"
Hillary Clinton does play politics with national security, the worst kind, to improve her presidential fortunes rather than protecting the people of New York.
