Bush lied, he spied.

Just like any other twobit dictator, after being in power for so long, they start fearing their own people.

Bush's domestic spying program, ostensively for finding terrorists, is tuned more for spying on us.

In January of this year, Bush said, "I'm mindful of your civil liberties and so I had all kinds of lawyers review the process.". Of course, his lawyers agreed with his view.

He set his administration dogs on the story. Even though they might have done more harm than good.

Hayden echoed a claim earlier this month by Vice President Cheney that, if
the NSA program had been in place prior to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, "it is
my professional judgment that we would have detected some of the 9/11 al Qaeda
operatives in the United States."

Like Cheney, however, Hayden did not mention that the NSA, CIA and FBI had
significant information about two of the leading hijackers as early as January
2000 but failed to keep track of them or capitalize on the information,
according to the Sept. 11 commission and others. He also did not mention NSA
intercepts warning of the attacks the day before, but not translated until Sept.
12, 2001.

Here's what we know now.

The FBI sought personal information on thousands of Americans last year from
banks, Internet service providers and other companies without having to seek
approval from a court, according to new data released by the Justice Department.

In a report to the top leaders of both parties in the House, the department
disclosed that the FBI had issued more than 9,200 "national security letters,"
or NSLs, seeking detailed information about more than 3,500 U.S. citizens or
legal residents in 2005.

So, you'd better be good. Big brother is watching.

  1. BIg brother has always been there. That is what a government is to a certain extent. They take control of certain aspects of the country when things don't go there way. All governmemnt's do it. Just ours was set up to not have the people fearing that they are going to be guilty until proven innocent. And we are if the government has the right top spy without our due process of the law. We are atomatically guility so they get to spy. Yeah I like where this is heading!! NOT!!!!


I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
