Dozens of secret Bush surveillance, executive power memos found; Could be made public


rawstory.com

Details about more than three dozen secret memoranda written by Bush Administration officials now sit atop a chart created by a public interest reporting group. The memos track new details about dozens of secret Bush Administration legal positions on torture, detention and warrantless wiretapping.

Pardon me I'm salivating!


"Oops forgot to throw those out. I thought I fed em to Barney!"

Among the memos' titles: "Criminal Charges against U.S. terrorists"; "Options for Interpreting the Geneva Convention" and "Fourth Amendment doesn't apply to military operations abroad or in U.S."

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said in another memo that the White House's lawyers had concluded that the Fourth Amendment's protections against warrantless search and seizure don't apply to the US military -- even when the operations take place on U.S. soil.

Holder told senators in response to questions sent to him before his confirmation hearings that he'd take an aggressive stance with regard to releasing the White House legal opinions his predecessors' had labeled as secret.

I know it is going to be stated a few times here. But Rawstory is just not going to cut it. I would like to see a valid source for this before I begin to believe it.

Well, let me make myself clear. I believe that they are VERY capable of it. I just want to make sure it is a fact that these documents will be made public before I begin to go off. A bunch of criminals left office on the 20th. Of that I am positive. Many Bush supporters say that in a few years time we will be thanking him. Well, I won't think him for the countless innocents that died at his orders. The many infrigements upon this nations rights and constitution. And just as importantly, his verbal disrespect given to that God Da..ed piece of paper we like to refer to as the Constitution.

Hey Budski did you change your avatar? Not sure if I am writing to the Budski I know and admire.

I ran a search on the article and scanned the Breaking News Forum. So can we live and let live? This story is important!
