Arnold to release intelligence reports

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office said Saturday he was ordering the release of dozens of intelligence reports prepared for the state Office of Homeland Security — a step that comes as lawmakers from both parties are denouncing a practice in which state intelligence agents compiled information about political and antiwar protests and rallies.

He only did this because negative publicity forced him to, piously saying this will show “the practice was not more widespread.” But that wasn’t what people were upset about. Rather, they quite rightfully are upset that it was happening at all.

“The governor believes that any inappropriate information gathering like this is totally unacceptable,” Adam Mendelsohn, Schwarzenegger’s communications director, said in an interview.

Oh spare me the bullshit. If he thought it was unacceptable, why did he allow it? As I recall, there’s a Democrat running for governor. Perhaps he could come out of his mouse hole and attack on this issue? Just a thought…

We shall see if ANSWER LA (or myself, for that matter) are in any of them.

No, that’s no paranoia…
