Why did Bush fail to ask for court approval?

I presume two reasons. #1 they were monitoring international communications which the NSA has never been limited from keeping tabs on. #2 The FISA courts still require probable cause. Talking to a terrorist doesn't meet that standard. But it certainly warrants monitoring if they ring up known terrorist again.
