How do you spell relief? I-M-P-E-A-C-H-M-E-N-T

From his radio address this morning:

This is a highly classified program that is crucial to our national security. Its purpose is to detect and prevent terrorist attacks against the United States, our friends, and allies. Yesterday, the existence of this secret program was revealed in media reports after being improperly provided to news organizations. …I have reauthorized this program more than 30 times since the September the 11th attacks

Bush claimed it was consistent with U.S. law and the Constitution. Many experts disagree.

I heard Condoleezza Rice justifying this in a snipped on NPR this morning. She said that the laws against wiretapping without a judge's order were passed in 1978 - before 9/11, which changed everything. This amoral woman is saying the same thing he is - that he is above the law. This is shameful - and if we don't draw a line in the sand here, we deserve what we'll get. And what we'll get will be something like martial law in 2008, just before the elections.
