Luckily, a few folks in the big media also aren't buying into the stomp and stammer.
Not only has this been reported before without such complaints, but the administration itself has often bragged in public about its aggressive probes of terrorist financing.
This is one of the reasons I don't vote Republcian, and it doesn't look like I will any time soon. National Security is not a political plaything, we were fighting terrorism for a long time before ol' Dubya & the Gang showed up, and we have been tracking finances of suspected criminals and terrorists since Capone got sent to Alcatraz.
While the New York Times gets a yellow card for acting like this kind of thing is news (and ignoring other things that actually are), the Republicans get a big, fat red card for making a mountain out of this molehill (when there are really real mountains they should be turing their attention to). But I guess harping on this is just another in a long line of 'issues' designed to rile up the right side of the echo box.
