When I heard that President Bush said yesterday that he secretly ordered the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans with suspected ties to terrorists because it was “critical to saving American lives” and “consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution, I thought I was certain to bump into George Orwell at the coffeepot.
Bush said the program has been reviewed regularly by the nation’s top legal authorities and targets only those people with “a clear link to these terrorist networks.” Noting the failures to detect hijackers already in the country before the strikes on New York and Washington, Bush said the NSA’s domestic spying since then has helped thwart other attacks Ah yes, just like those pesky walking err should I say hiding weapons of mass destruction, this too sounds like Mr. Bush doing what he wants without true justification. His ready, shoot, aim policy grows tiresome and embarassing.
The NSA “authorization is a vital tool in our war against the terrorists,” Bush said. “It is critical to saving American lives. The American people expect me to do everything in my power under our laws and Constitution to protect them and their civil liberties. And that is exactly what I will continue to do, so long as I’m the president of the United States.”
I think we ALL see the answer here…..”as long as you live under my roof you will do as I say”…”yes Papa W.”.
How long before our voices are heard??? Search Monkey is looking for these and many other answers. Any thoughts?
