    If you had unfettered authority to listen to ANYONE'S telephone calls and read their e-mail, and nobody could know because it was super-triple-secret and critical in the WAR ON TERROR, what do you think you'd do?

    a.  have enormous power, but not use it.

    b.  be dying to find out what the prosecutor knew, not go there

    c.  be listening to everything you could get your hands on

    I am afraid with this White House we all know that the answer is (c).  Cheney is a thug, Bush a partisan zealot with scant regard for civil liberties and everyone else in the White House was a sycophant, eager to show their loyalty and ability to out-yes-man each other.

    What a great way to stay one jump ahead of the law!  Tap their phones and read their e-mail.  Hello Soviet Union.  Warrants would have been soooo inconvenient, since they would have had the names of Government Officials on them, and even the compliant FISA Court would have balked at that.  There's your explanation about why Bush did what he did.  To protect his own from almost certain prosecution and conviction.  Anyone want to bet that isn't what the facts will eventually show?

      what Rove's part in all of this was, other then the Plame affair.

      I keep feeling it goes beyond the cover up of 911.
