I call bullshit

"President Bush again defended his program of warrantless surveillance Thursday, saying "there's no doubt in my mind it is legal." He suggested that he might resist congressional efforts to change or expressly endorse it.

"The program's legal, it's designed to protect civil liberties, and it's necessary," Bush told a White House news conference."

BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT!

LATER: Edited to use Doonesbury "Torture" icon.

I love how all the people defending the spying are the people who decided to do the spying. Really, we should trust them. Alberto Gonzales is a disinterested party in this situation. Just like we should believe Rumsfeld when he says "The military isn't broken", when that is exactly what the report his office commissioned says.

In addition it seems to be under-reported that the head of the NSA started tapping domestic phones on 9/12 with out a presidential order and before the congress had voted him the powers he said make these actions legal.

It's completely stupid, but something about the idea of Bush's people actually listening in on... my cell phone conversations with a certain boy in the Middle East... hoo hah. If only. I'd love to see the look on the face of the wiretap dude. Not that the Bush Regime cares about Seattle/Tel Aviv phone sex (OR DO THEY?!) but I can still laugh about the idea. I'm looking for reasons to laugh here.


Seriously, of course, Bush has pushed it. Constitutionally and everything, pushed it too far. It's amazing what we accept as normal now. It's criminal.

He speaks in endless circles. The progam is legal, the FISA court has turned down seven requests for warrants in the tens of thousands of applications. Hell,it even grants retroactive warrants!

But he couldn't even be bothered with that. He's pretty much claiming that his grant from congress to use force in Iraq gives him the right to do whatever he wants.

How that is "legal" and "protecting civil liberties" escapes me.

The "protecting civil liberties" bit is the one that really cracked me up.

Check out this link (http://www.insightmag.com/Media/MediaManager/impeachment.htm ) - seems certain white house people are prepping for impeachment hearings.

How many blatant lies can a person put in one sentence? I think he broke a record or something. Yikes.

I totally agree with ya "BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT!"

This is the part that is really disturbing “it's designed to protect civil liberties, and it's necessary”

WTF kinda logic is that?

Otherwise: Ponyboy says HI There!
