02/26/04 Letter to the Council

To:  Mayor & City Council  

SUBJECT:   Patriot Act

Ref.  Vote ---2-25-2004

Today, a majority of you on the Dallas City Council "really" did it by voting against a most important, last ditch, intelligence gathering tool. 

Remember when the Ex- Chief of Police severed relations with the Dallas Agent in Charge of the FBI?   That was mistake number one. 

On 2-25-2004, you initiated blunder number two by severing intelligence relations (by vote) with the U.S. Congress, Senate, Executive Office, along with CIA/NSA/DIA/DEA, and other national and international intelligence gathering agencies and services.

That was a very/very  bad thing to do.  Dallas is about to hire a new Chief of Police.  With today's City Council's position on intelligence voiced to Washington (and Langley), things are not going to be the "rosiest" in Dallas as critical issues relating to Homeland Security, and others manifest.

Some of you have some knowledge of intelligence gathering issues, but it is obvious that nine of you are clueless as to how the system operates.    Because you did not know, you should have performed more research prior to your vote.

The eyes of many in our country will now be focused upon the attitude of Dallas City government toward security of our nation. You have made our city and country more vulnerable.  This is not a pleasant position to be in with our very troubled world. 

You have done it, and reversal of such action is very difficult to achieve. 

Now, I feel a sadness for our City of Dallas and its poor attitude toward the security of our nation.

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
