Just a reminder of what the Obama Administration told us only recently...
As @JimGeraghty at NRO likes to say "All Obama statements come with an expiration date"...
*The Arstechnica article calls it a "stand-alone network not connected to the CIA’s that could only be accessed by CIA personnel with the permission of the Senate staff." I would contend that this is still technically a CIA network, since they paid for it, built it, and maintained it. If they accessed it against an agreement, I will leave that to the lawyers to decide if that is "illegal")

NBC: Police Remove Vietnam War Veterans at Memorial Wall12:50 PM, OCT 5, 2013 • BY JOHN McCormick
Via William Jacobson, NBC's affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday.
After one group of veterans went around the barricade, "the park ranger told them the wall was closed," NBC's Mark Seagraves reported. "Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That's when police came and moved everyone out."
Lawmaker says barricade of WWII memorial is 'Chicago thuggery'A group of Texas congressmen armed with wire cutters made their way to the World War II Memorial in Washington after they learned the National Park Service had reinforced the barriers blocking the site with wire.
“This is Chicago thuggery,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told me. “The president is trying to inflict the most amount of pain and suffering. This is not some bureaucratic mistake. This is Chicago thuggery. You try to make people hurt so they don’t resist what you tell them to do in the future.”
The World War II memorial on the National Mall has become a symbol of the shutdown of the federal government. Earlier this week the National Park Service closed the memorial and erected barriers. Republican lawmakers moved those barricades so that elderly war veterans could access the site.
Instapundit subtly points out that the NYT editorial writers (and their overseers) need to go back to school and re-take U.S. History 101.Flash forward to 2013, and we can still find prominent lefties who profess alleged love of the Constitution, but have no idea what is (or is not) actually in it. Thanks to Ed Morrissey for pointing us to the confused rambling of the woman who was once only behind Joe Biden in line of Presidential succession. Watch and shudder....
THE NEW YORK TIMES' EDITORS think that the phrase "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" is in the Constitution. But then, they believe many things that are demonstrably untrue.Imagined NYT response:
"Constitution, Declaration of Independence...whatever. You are taking my words out of context, and missing the bigger point....blah, blah,blah."
