Politically, I'm very perplexed at GWB and Antonio Gonzales' attitude about wire tapping americans...regardless of whom they call. The fact that they are only wire tapping cell phones (so they claim) is red flag number one. The fact that they have 72 hours to file the paperwork, but claim it's just too hard (wtf?!) is red flag number two. But to throw a thwarted 2002 attack on L.A. into the fray...when the intel for it was NOT established through wire taps, in fact the arrests weren't even made by U.S. intelligence is red flag number three.
Sorry, Mr. President...I can't buy that you are protecting me by stealing my rights.
