Is Gonzales really saying what I think he's saying???

With Democrats and Republicans alike questioning whether President Bush had the legal authority to approve the program, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales argued that Congress had essentially given Bush broad powers to order the domestic surveillance after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

"Our position is that the authorization to use military force which was passed by the Congress shortly after Sept. 11 constitutes that authority," said Gonzales.

Domestic surveillance is the same thing as military force???

Oh well, I suppose we should be grateful that Bush limited himself to eavesdropping rather than full-blown home invasions. Can I have America back now, please?

Gonzalez is so full of shit. I wish they would just test that in a court of law, instead of just letting him make it up as he goes along.

Here's a question. Who leaked the info about the wiretaps to the New York Times? Its too bad they sat on it for so long, but I wonder what the motive was for telling them in the first place?

I can only assume that they were appalled that the Constitution was getting shat upon, but they didn't want to get their ass fired or worse.
