Bush's Telling Comments

"I'm mindful of your civil liberties and so I had all kinds of lawyers review the process," Bush told some 9,000 students, soldiers and dignitaries in the audience.

I would think that a president who was "mindful of your civil liberties" would scrutinize a warrantless wiretap program with his own heart, mind, and soul. Having a "bunch of lawyers review" anything is a way to:

a) legitimize the illegitimate
b) ensure technical legal soundness

Such a basis for making decisions on a slippery slope can only lead to the inevitable slide down the hill.
