Top officials: Bush can still wiretap US citizens without warrant

Raw Story
Senior Bush administration officials said Tuesday that they believe the president still has the constitutional authority to continue his domestic wiretapping program without first seeking court approval.

“Senior U.S. administration officials have told the U.S. Congress that they could not promise that the Bush administration would fulfill its January pledge to continue to seek warrants from a secret court for a domestic wiretapping program,” reports the International Herald Tribune.

In January, the administration agreed to seek court-approved warrants for all wiretaps of US citizens and other living inside the US.

But during a Tuesday hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Michael McConnell, the director of national intelligence, told Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) that he could not promise that Bush would always seek warrants for domestic wiretaps.

HLs Take
So basically this McConnell guy is saying that “we lied” right to Feingold’s face. So now not only do they lie, they come right out and say we lied. They know there is absolutely no accountability for lying so why not just be honest about the lying. Not only are they saying they lied, they are saying they are going to lie some more in the future. “uh yeah, I know we said we were going to ask for court permission to wiretap American citizens, but you know…we’re not going to. How long will republicans in congress continue to support this lying thief. The American people know what is going on and republicans have to worry about being voted out of office in ’08 which most of them will if they don’t start denouncing the madman. How long before all of Bush’s support in congress is gone?
