In his remarks, Bush said that allowing the NSA to monitor the international phone calls and e-mails of Americans with suspected ties to terrorists can hardly be considered "domestic spying."Right. Well, Alberto Gonzales is a lawyer, so it's not exactly like those credentials buy any kind of guarantee of civil liberty defense.
"It's what I would call a terrorist surveillance program," Bush said at Kansas State. "If they're making a phone call in the United States, it seems like to me we want to know why."
He said he "had all kinds of lawyers review the process" to ensure it didn't violate civil liberties or the law.
Anyway, Rove is calling the issue "a political winner" for the next election. Myself, I'm brushing up on my German. Tomorrow belongs to me.
