Government Defends Domestic Spying in Court:
"The federal government defended its warrantless domestic surveillance program in court for the first time Monday, saying it is well within the president's authority but that proving that would require revealing state secrets" -- excerpt from Washington Post.
This is ridiculous. President Bush claims that he had the authority to order wiretapping of Americans but can not disclose proof because it would reveal state secrets. Isn't that convenient. How stupid does he think Americans are? Or more importantly, how stupid do American thinks he is?
