"Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires---a wiretap requires a court order.

Nothing has changed, by the way.

When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so.


It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution."


---President George W. Bush
April 20, 2004

When bush made this statement, he had already spied on his fellow Americans (most likely political opponents such as John Kerry) for over two years!

If he lies about something basic such as this, how can ANYONE trust his statements about Iran, the status on the war on terror, anything? In my days as a Republican, we used to say "fire the liar" about Clinton. Well, not only can "fire the liar" be said about Bush. Bush's lie is so much bigger that unless there are impeachment hearings, we even have a Congress?
