I just got an email about this from today's (6/17/01) Tony Snow show on Fox News . Anyone confirim it? [B]"Finding the Russian scientists may be a problem being that Russia does not have a Social Security System, as here in America, that allows us to monitor, track down and capture an American citizen"[/B]

If he said that, that is not good.

First McCain; then Jeffords; now Powell. Perfect... Maybe some of us should run for the Republican Party? It's a thought.

And some of you still claim that thereis no New world Order.........

Yup....It is quite an eye opener when you realise your fears and concerns over firearms registration have been trumped by the registration of your person shortley after your birth....They might as well have tattooed the number to your forearm. Semper Fi

Any chance that Powell wasn't happy about it, just stating a fact?

This is the guy who said in February that there would be "no more UN bashing." I posted the link on this site. Now the link is gone. Now this quote. I sorta believe it. Would sure like to see a serious citation, though. [url]http://www.jpfo.org/alert20010216.htm[/url]

Here is the quote and a link to the transcript. SNOW: So we really don't know where these materials or even scientists are right now? POWELL: Well, no, we don't exactly have a social security system that captures every Russian scientist, but this is something that is of concern to us and should be of concern to Russia as well.

Don't you just love paranoid misquotes.

Thanks, Aggie. That is not as strong as the original mis-quote. Still, it is an interesting reference to a or the social security sytem (which was "Not to be used for identification" until Jimmy Carter changed the law so that they can use it for identification.)

I hope it is not true Powell said this. But would not doubt it, and yes, sadly it is true. Sometimes I wish I had not gone downtown that day to register!!
