The Pentagon is spying on us, NSA is spying on us, Dubya is spying on us. Gee, it’s so nice to be in the "land of the free", isn’t it?
Months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for evidence of terrorist activity without the court-approved warrants ordinarily required for domestic spying
"This is really a sea change," said a former senior official who specializes in national security law. "It’s almost a mainstay of this country that the N.S.A. only does foreign searches."
Of course Dubya would never ever abuse this by spying on political opponents, would he?
