       Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld Wanted Illegal Surveillance in 70's

As you may have heard this mornings hearing into whether or not The President has the legal right to wiretap American Citizens is not the first time the issue has come up. During the Ford Administration in the mid 70's High ranking U.S Government Officials wanted Ford to approve The Governments ability to wiretap American Citizens without a warrant, (even though there was no war going on at the time)which goes directly against The Constitution. Any guess who these high ranking officials might have been? That’s right it was George Bush Sr., Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld, among others. Ford rebuffed their efforts so now 30 years later they are trying it again. This time of course the President is for the Illegal Surveillance. Here’s some pictures.

       Video of Jeff Sessions: Army Can Kill Without Miranda Warning

Here is a video from Crooks and from Face The Nation Where Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama is being interviewed. He is asked about Bushs right to have the NSA wiretap American Citizens. Sessions then goes off on a Tangent about how sleeper cells were involved in 9/11, implying that if we would have been able to intercept their calls we could have stopped it. (He does not mention all the direct evidence that Bush already had about how Osama wanted to fly planes into buildings.)He then starts talking about How The Army can kill the enemy without a Miranda Warning. What does that mean? Miranda warnings are for Americans being arrested by the Police. Is he saying that The Army can now come to Americans Citizens homes and kill them without warning??
