Statt "Internet im Bayernland" titelte die SZ den Leitartikel am 14.05
"Geheimdienst im Niemandsland". Dr. Waldemar Markwardt, Bad Wiessee,
schrieb u.a. dazu auf der der SZ-Laesterbriefseite am 29.05. unter
"Geheimdienst fuer verdiente Parteigenossen":
"Dem Buerger wird (nicht) vermittelt, dass Geheimdienste ein Teil unserer
freiheitlichen rechtsstaatlichen Ordnung sind...vor allem solides
Fachwissen gefragt ist. Statt dessen nutzen die Parteien die Geheimdienste,
speziell den BND, als personelles Versorgungsfeld fuer ihre Parteigaenger,
die man - streng nach Proporz - auf hochdotierte Dienstposten setzt. Die
sog. Entscheidungsebene, die die jeweiligen Praesidenten zu beraten hat,
ist weitgehend bar jeglichen geheimdienstlichen Fachwissens."
Soweit zur Lage InduLa.
Nun zu den USA.

So daemlich kann doch nicht mal ein bayerischer Richter sein. Wenn doch,
dann sollten wir den Laden hier zu machen, die Auslaender nach Hause
schicken, die Staedte aufloesen und wieder auf die Baeume klettern.
