WASHINGTON - The nation's top two law enforcement officials acknowledged Friday the FBI broke the law to secretly pry out personal information about Americans. They apologized and vowed to prevent further illegal intrusions.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales left open the possibility of pursuing criminal charges against FBI agents or lawyers who improperly used the USA Patriot Act in pursuit of suspected terrorists and spies.

Anybody could have seen this coming. Give the government a opportunity to overstep their bounds and they will do it everytime.

It's not like they don't have precedence. From what I understand, under Hoover, the FBI broke many laws in cracking down on and essentially nullifying the KKK in the 60's — even as far as premeditated murder.

I guess sometimes the end does justify the means, except this time the end hasn't been achieved, and the means have been found out.

Could this be the beginning of the end of the FBI?

Nice to see some acknowledgement.

Maybe I can rest a little easier at night knoing no one cares about my opinions anymore enough to report to such measures.

*tips hat to the Feds*

Honestly - whatever happened to the days they would just show up at your house and ask a few questions? Keep it old school, guys.

Once again the press of excited posters from the hard right to comment on this latest outrage from the bush administration overwhelms the thread.


A gazillion posts on the subject of Al Gore's electric bill... three (4 now) on really important matters as this one.

What is wrong with this picture?
