I was going to post later today, after Bushs speech, but after reading some of the comments from my last post on Bush and the NSA and the illegal eavesdropping. I just could not rest in peace until I could just speak my mind.
My Republican friends, Mr. Bush is not the King of this Country, he is President and he has no more of a right than any other President of past, to ignore the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to authorize eavesdropping on terrorism suspects.
Mr. Bush has no right to give any Service authority to wiretap American Citizens, for the sake of protecting them from anything without legal authority and I have not heard any legal authority from this man.
I'm sorry to have to burst your bubble, but Mr. President you should read and get out more often. What you did was illegal Sir, you have violated the law and justified it with the fact that you are President.
Yes, you are President of the United States, not King of the United States and when your term is over, you will be former President of the United States, just another citizen, who was once President, not King.
Now the President stated that he has briefed key members of Congress on the program a dozen times. He stated that classified programs are typically disclosed to the chairmen and top-ranked minority party members of the House and Senate intelligence committees.
Which now makes you wonder, which minority members of the House and Senate intelligence committees knew about this and why have they not come out to say they knew of it.
If this is true that they knew, then they to are guilty by association and should be in the dog house right with King Bush.
But Mr. Bush has not said that they knew of this illegal action, he only left out there that he brief them on such matters not this matter.
