Very interesting news being made by BushCo today! George W. Bush has decided that he will NOT renew his illegal warrantless domestic spying program.
Per Alberto Gonzales (the same man who helped Bush keep his DUI quiet and said the Geneva Covention is now "quaint" and "obsolete"), "Any electronic surveillance that was occurring as part of the Terrorist Surveillance Program will now be conducted subject to the approval of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court." (Well duh, it was supposed to be that way all along!)
Since this news broke today, I've been thinking, what is the REAL reason Bush has decided not to renew the program, and instead place it under the purview of the FISA Court?
And it has occured to me that Bush KNOWS this unconstitutional, illegal program is an IMPEACHABLE offense. And he wants this issue off the table before Congressional Democrats really get going with their oversight hearings in Congress. In my view, he's hoping that by not renewing the program, the Democrats will not count this among the many things the Bush Administration has done, that they need to investigate.
Here's hoping he's wrong.
