The Big Lie Spreads
New York Times Falls in Line - Spencer Calls for Action

Top: Fence as specified by law
Bottom: "Fence" as built by DHS
American Patrol -- February 24
Public Must Demand the Truth
    Yesterday, when the New York Times reported : "Bush administration officials said Friday that they would begin using new technology to create a virtual fence along sections of the border with Mexico, and that construction had been completed on 302 miles of physical fence," Glenn Spencer had had enough.
    "I have been quiet up to now, but no longer," Spencer said he had presented air-tight proof to The Lou Dobbs Show and the Washington Times that DHS Secretary Chertoff was lying about the fence however they failed in their duty to inform the public. "Now I am asking the public to demand that these media outlets live up to their billing as protectors of America and tell the damn truth about the fence," Spencer said.
