Thomas Sowell brings up an interesting point.

Hundreds of raw FBI files on Republicans were sent to the Clinton White House, in violation of laws and for no higher purpose than having enough dirt on enough people to intimidate political opponents. But domestic spying against Republicans did not shock nearly as many people as intercepting phone calls from terrorists.

The double-standard is clear. The Main Stream Media is unconcerned with the spying activities of Democrat presidents on Republicans. Afterall, Republicans deserve to be spied on, don't they? But if a Republican president follows the advice of his Attorney General on stopping terrorist activities, then suddenly that is an impeachable offense.

Nobody (nobody sane, anyway) is saying Bush ordered this surveillance for his own personal gain. He was trying to protect Americans. This is something he feels strongly about. Can anyone say Clinton was behaving in the best interest of the citizens when he got a look-see at those FBI files?
