Bush Orders Wiretaps

Were living in a parallel universe. Unfortunately its the one where Spock grows a beard.

When asked about his authorization of wiretaps within the United States today, President Bush responded "Do I have the legal authority to do this? And the answer is, absolutely." Considering the past mistakes and omissions of this administration it's worthwhile to check and see if what the President says is true. Unsurprisingly, he's wrong again.

Under U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter 36, Subchapter 1 on Electronic Surveillance, it's quite clear:

So there you have it, not only is the President apparently misinformed about the law, it appears that he just went on national television and admitted that he has committed the same crime multiple times.

I may be wrong, but somehow I just don't think that Congress is going to let this slide.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
