"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN - Inquiry opens into leak of domestic spying program

The secret eavesdropping program, which President Bush authorized shortly after the September 11 attacks, allows the NSA to intercept domestic communications without a warrant, as long as one party is outside the United States.

Interesting article, but as most tend to be these days they leave alot to be desired. Had you no idea about the situation (in many cases even if you do know about it), CNN and others in the media just can't stand the idea of being clear, lest they reveal enough that might make one make up there own mind. According to the above how could you think anything but that Bush is spying. No mention of what type of party outside the US one within the US may be contacting that would pique the interest of the NSA. Just general spying on us and trampling our civil rights and privacy, right?
