Memo Confirms Bush's Disregard of Constitution on Wiretaps


www.opednews.com

The memo, dated October 23, 2001, was written just days before Bush administration officials, including Vice President Dick Cheney, briefed four House and Senate leaders on the NSA's secret wiretapping program for the first time.

The memo remains secret, but its existence was disclosed last Tuesday in a footnote of a separate secret memo, dated March 14, 2003, released by the Pentagon in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Ahhh, it must be so nice to appoint oneself the all mighty King-Dictator-Decider, who is above all laws of the land and unaccountability...200+years of the constitution laying the framework of this country almost obliterated by one insanely criminalistic regime. Awesome.


"The recent disclosures underscore the Bush administration's extraordinarily sweeping conception of executive power," said Jameel Jaffer, director of the ACLU's National Security Project. "The administration's lawyers believe the president should be permitted to violate statutory law, to violate international treaties and even to violate the Fourth Amendment inside the U.S. They believe that the president should be above the law."

It is just wonderful knowing that our leader has no problem spitting on the constitution and rubbing it in the dirt. Who knows what will happen next. Way to go DD. I always find your posts extremely informative.

Just knowing that the phone companies have complied w/ the gov't demands for wiretapping (or whatever it is called) for cell phones AND the phone companies cooperation with the government in allowing phone records to be accessed/tapped....(believe what you want.

I think that the saddest part of this is the fact that whatever we (as conspiracy theorists) dream up and provide sources for, will never actually even attempt to address anything that the Bush Administration has done.

This is just another case in point that the bill of rights no longer exists.
