On Hill, Anger and Calls for Hearings Greet News of Stateside Surveillance


— November 30, -0001

Congressional leaders of both parties called for hearings and issued condemnations yesterday in the wake of reports that President Bush signed a secret order in 2002 allowing the National Security Agency to spy on hundreds of U.S. citizens and other residents without court-approved warrants.

Bush declined to discuss the domestic eavesdropping program in a television interview, but he joined his aides in saying that the government acted lawfully and did not intrude on citizens’ rights.

Right. And Dick Chaney is a benevolent, huggable nun. Details here from the Washington Post.
