Bush Administration Reverses Policy On Wiretaps 

In a bizarre change of policy the Bush Administration has decided to end its illegal and unconstitutional policy of listening in on telephone calls without a warrant and without going to the special court established to review such actions.

What happened to all the Republican outrage at the New York Times for revealing that this was going on in the first place?

It appears that the reversal took place simply because U.S. Attorney General Gonzales is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

If an appearance before Democrats was all it took to get some of our liberties back then perhaps divided government is in the best interest of all of us.
