Bush lies regarding wiretaps

DNC blog, giving us the President’s quote on April 20, 2004:

Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires — a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way.

New York Times article that broke the story on Friday about the Bush Administration wiretaps:

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, according to government officials.

Lest the DNC be accused of fabricating the President’s quote, it’s currently available here at the White House website.

But remember, this is the guy restoring honor and dignity to the White House. When he lies, it’ll only be about national security, civil liberties or the Constitution. Not, you know, about a girlfriend. That, well, that’d be impeachable.

One response to “Bush lies regarding wiretaps”

  1. Isn't it amazing that so many still don't get what this administration has done? Before moving back East from Kansas City a year ago, I kept hearing what “a good man” the President is and how “he's one of us.” Does anyone read the newspapers or watch the news (not Fox) anymore? And given the current political climate, I wouldn't be surprised if critics are on some official (but secret) watch list.
