A U-turn on warrantless wiretaps

A U-turn on warrantless wiretaps By Shaun Waterman Jan 18, 2007, 17:51 GMT WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- "In an astounding U-turn, the Bush administration says it will end its much-touted program of warrantless phone-taps of suspected terrorists, opting instead for secret orders from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court which would allow the monitoring to take place under judicial supervision and review."

Wow. Looks like someone somewhere has a modicum of common sense. There's got to be a few people in the country that don't want to see an Orwellian world. Many people say that these kind of tactics are necessary to "stop terrorism." Blah! There is nothing that can't be done within the realms of staying within the boundaries of civil rights. The need for these draconian measures is only to consolidate power away from the people. You know the people I mean.

"We the people"
