without a warrant, thanks to president Bush:
“W pushes envelope on U.S. spying
New postal law lets Bush peek through your mail”
[i]"President Bush has quietly claimed sweeping new powers to open Americans’ mail without a judge’s warrant, the Daily News has learned.
The President asserted his new authority when he signed a postal reform bill into law on Dec. 20. Bush then issued a “signing statement” that declared his right to open people’s mail under emergency conditions.
That claim is contrary to existing law and contradicted the bill he had just signed, say experts who have reviewed it."[/i]
I would like to know why it’s so important to override the warrant process. The government really needs the ability to spy on it’s citizens with no oversight, in total secrecy, based on the decision of a few people who can’t be held accountable for their decisions?
Is this something that Conservatives agree with? At what point do you say ‘enough’?
