CNN.com - Inside Bush's secret spy net - May 14, 2006: "The day after USA Today broke the story that the National Security Agency (NSA) aimed to 'create a database of every call ever made' within the U.S., as one of the paper's sources put it, a Washington Post-ABC News poll found that 63 percent of those who were asked said they found the NSA program to be an acceptable way to fight terrorism, and 44 percent said they strongly approved of it."
To add something new, this evening (Wed, 5/17) I caught on NPR an interview with a Rep. senator from Kansas [NPR.org]. As I understand him, we have to exchange some freedoms to battle terrorists. The president is doing everything he can to fight terrorists, and any opposition to the president undermines the fight. Therefore, let Dubya be. Incredible.
But... I thought the terrorists hated us because of our freedoms? Shouldn't preserving our liberties be priority #1 in demonstrating that they haven't changed us?
