In the wake of 9/11, President Bush ordered the secret wiretapping of American citizens without obtaining the legally mandated court orders. Remarkably, brazenly, he has even admitted it, citing his sworn duty to protect us. Apparently he has some notion that as president of the United States, he is not bound by the same law as the rest of us.
Scary stuff. Who protects us from Bush? Isn’t he sworn to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States”? Where in his oath of office did it say he is empowered to subvert and ignore the law?
With a man like Bush in charge, who needs gestapo?
