God, it's happening again...

So yeah, Bush authorized illegal spying on US citizens. But hey, he has good reason:
Bush defended the program as narrowly designed and used "consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution." He said it is employed only to intercept the international communications of people inside the U.S. who have been determined to have "a clear link" to al-Qaida or related terrorist organizations.

Government officials have refused to provide details, including defining the standards used to establish such a link or saying how many people are being monitored.

Remember the last time he said someone was clearly linked to al-Qaida? Anyone? Anyone? Beuler?

Here's a hint. It rhymes with:

If anyone buys this from this administration without ANY PROOF let me know because I owe them a punch in the face. Thanks.


The president had harsh words for those who revealed the program to the media, saying they acted improperly and illegally. The surveillance was first disclosed in Friday's New York Times.

"As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have," Bush said. "The unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk."

So now he's worried about unathorized disclosure... Asshole.
