    No they didn't. That was part of the whole issue. Bush fought against even getting warrants AFTER the fact. So before you start spouting off...at least know what you are talking about. Geesh.....

    For foreign calls, not domestic calls. That's little fact is conveniently left out.

    When did women get to vote in Canada? It's going to kill you to admit it, cause it'll show you up for what you are....full of it. Go ahead and look it up, it's wasn't back in the 18th Century......or the 19th Century......

    Again, nothing about wiretapping. From what I understand, the Justice Department wanted to review phone records to see if any calls were made to or from the AP by any inside government source or phone related to the leak of information about a planned terrorist plot that was stopped. They aren't trying to listen in on actual calls now, just the phone records. The police do this all the time in criminal investigations - the twist here is that the press is considered above such actions constitutionally.

    The left's outrage is fixated on Rush Limbaugh and co for holding o'losers feet to the fire.

    They deserve to be criticized. They are also not (as of yet) dangerous to the integrity of the administration itself.

    who cares?

    I'm a citizen with certain protections. That the person on the other end of my call is overseas doesn't mean a god damn thing. stop shilling for these politicians if you ever want to be taken seriously

    I'm not schilling for anyone. I'm simply pointing out the facts. Stop calling me a schil, just because you don't like what I have to say, if you ever want to be taken seriously.

    oh, and learn how to spell schil.
