More Bush Crap
What exactly is he trying to hide? That he is spying on people that are not suspected terrorists? Perhaps his political enemies? This is the only explanation that makes sense. Current FISA law allows the President to spy on whoever he wants without a warrant, as long as he reports the spying to the court sometime in the future. Thus, the issue here isn't Bush's need to spy on people quickly without having to wait for a warrant. The issue is Bush's need to spy on people without having to tell judges, members of Congress or anyone else who he is spying on and why. Sounds like a dirty tricks program to me.
"It's important for people to understand that this program is so sensitive and so important that if information gets out to how we run it or how we operate it, it'll help the enemy," he said. "Why tell the enemy what we're doing?"
"We'll listen to ideas. But I want to make sure that people understand that if the attempt to write law makes this program -- is likely to expose the nature of the program, I'll resist it," he said.

On the Middle East, Bush expressed concern that Palestinian elections had given a majority to the radical party Hamas, which has called for the elimination of Israel, although he noted that democratic elections sometimes produce unwelcome results.National elections can produce unwelcome results? I'll say!
