It's only laws - ignore them if they don't fit

The newly created Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council is charged with sharing information aimed at protecting the nation's infrastructure, cybercomponents included. Michael Chertoff, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary, cited security reasons when he signed off on exempting the council from the Federal Advisory Committee Act, or FACA.
I agree 100% that there needs to be some meetings here that are not made immediately public, but why is it that every time the bush administration thinks a law is hindering national security, they just ignore it instead of going through the process of changing the law?

GW Bush has fostered an atmosphere of "we will follow whichever laws we want and ignore any we don't like." No need to use the democratic process, bush just gets to decide what is or isn't a good law. That would be what a King believes, not a president.


Bush reviewing laws he doesn't like.


More things that just piss me off
