Adler said, Bush has “claimed the authority to suspend the Geneva Convention, to terminate treaties, to seize American citizens from the streets to detain them indefinitely without benefit of legal counseling, without benefit of judicial review. He has ordered a domestic surveillance program which violates the statutory law of the United States as well as the Fourth Amendment.”

I believe this video says alot about Bush.
He disagrees with International Law.
He keeps saying within the law...Who's law? Not Amnesty International. Bush is Scary.

What's most disturbing about this (at least to me) is how little resistance he met within the congressional and senatorial bodies, and of course, how the judiciary simply 'let' him get away with this sans any meaningful objection whatsoever.

Since when were they authorized to set US policy.
The one thing that impressed me about Bush in that interview is the way he took command of it and kept Lauer on the defensive.
I also like how articulate he was and how he refused to waiver under Lauer's repeated attempts to trip up the president.
This is not the president we see in the sound bites on David Letterman.
This is not the president that liberals love to ridicule, although the ridicule continues even in the face of evidence that Bush is a strong leader.
The Bush in that interview is the kind of man we needed to put terrorists around he world on the run and to retreat into caves in remote parts of the world.
This is the kind of man who refused stand by while our enemies planned and executed even more attacks on the US.
Bush is my kind of president.
If we are going to act as the world police, then we should at least respect international law. It's called setting an example for the rest of the world to follow.
