Life, liberty and the pursuit of good barbecue
I found this excerpt intriguing:Bush defended the program as narrowly designed and used "consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution." He said it is employed only to intercept the international communications of people inside the U.S. who have been determined to have "a clear link" to al-Qaida or related terrorist organizations.If there is already a "clear link" then what do they they need the wire taps for?
DD is right. A "clear link" = guilt. Why don't they just arrest them and rendition them or refuse them habeas corpus and take care of them that way. Problem solved - they'll never bother us again. And we don't have to mess about with all that wire-tapping and eavesdropping which is, to be fair, cumbersome and un-Christian.
