They like to watch - part two

A lot more on Bush's President's Surveillance Program today. The CIA was more actively involved than anyone admitted at the time. It appears they basically functioned as the rubberstamp. "According to the report, CIA would prepare a threat briefing for President Bush justifying the need for such surveillance."

My pal, mikevotes has more links on the political pressure exerted in preparing the so-called threat assessments. Also the reviews show "not enough relevant officials were aware of the size and depth of the program."

"The Bush White House pulled in a great quantity of information far beyond the warrantless wiretapping previously acknowledged..."

"We also learned that George Bush himself was the one who ordered Gonzales to John Ashcroft's post surgery bedside looking for a signature of approval after Comey refused." Apparently it was also Bush who called Ashcroft's room at the time of that ghoulish power play. And as always, much more commentary at Memeorandum.

I have a feeling if we ever find out the full extent of this regime's criminality, it will almost defy human comprehension.

Kind of off topic Libby. Ashcroft gave the commencement at my daughter's graduation. We were all going to not clap for him in protest of stuff. But he gave a great speech. We gave him a hearty ovation when he was done.
