Dear Log,

«Woolsey also boasted in the Wall Street Journal that the National Security Agency used its international eavesdropping network, ECHELON, to spy on European companies in order to give major US corporations a competitive advantage. His reasoning? "We have spied on you because you bribe." As with Freedom House, Woolsey operates by abusing American power in ways once thought unimaginable, and then blaming the other side for uncivilized behavior which naturally provokes us.

[...]Interestingly, a feudal monarchy like Kuwait gets a higher "freedom" rating than Russia, while pro-American Egypt, whose dictator-for-life Mubarak recently won another "election" with 89 percent of the vote, and then subsequently jailed his rival for five years, was praised and upgraded on the freedom scale for apparently assisting in the formation of a few women's groups. What is the difference between Kuwait and Russia? Go back to the Project for a New American Century: one "promotes" American interests, and the other "opposes" American interests. Therefore, the other, Russia, is "Not Free" and "fascist." »
