Wiretap Wednesdays!

Doesn’t it make you feel betrayed when foreign media has to say things like “Mr. Bush expected a “full investigation” into who leaked information about the wiretap programme.” and “My personal opinion is it was a shameful act for someone to disclose this very important programme in a time of war,”? This is the United States of America! We’re supposed to be not one of, but THE most free nation on Earth, then the president is denouncing someone who revealed a secret government ploy to invade people’s privacy! Why is he doing this? King George should be honoring this man! Oh wait, I forgot, george likes to wire tap, and torture too. “The fact that we’re discussing this programme is helping the enemy”. What enemy is that George? The ones that want to kill us? Fair enough. I think I know a greater enemy though, and you’re him. A learned American once said, “Give me liberty or give me death!” I agree. I think that I would risk being killed by a terrorist bullet than lose my freedom to “my” government.

    Little kids? Hmmm. Don’t know what they are talking about? Hmmm.
    Are you sure YOU know what is going on???

    How come you didn’t reveal your name to us???

    he has every right to do this and we as a people elected him. and as for the enamy it is terrorism and now that the program is out they won’t use our phones any more. so we won’t know what is going on.

    Well, why the hell can’t they wiretap the OTHER end of the call — overseas.

    Actually Sworez, he doesn’t. There’s this pesky little document in the way called the 4th Amendment, that keeps him from wiretapping residents without WARRANTS.

  7. Sworez says:

    There is a hidden court inside of our goverment that allows them to wire taps but the time it takes would defeat the porpose sometimes the call that you need to intercept that call is limited and time is needed to set everything up. And to answer your question Ben you can’t tap the other end because they are comeing from countries that we are not on the best of terms with.
