Senator Feingold - 'nuff said

Senator Feingold introduced a measure to censure the President because supposedly he:

“authorized an illegal program to spy on American citizens on American soil, and then misled Congress and the public about the existence and legality of that program.” Feingold Pushes to Censure President

Normally I would ignore such a nothing story but I wanted to highlight one part of Charles Babington’s piece about this in Tuesday’s Washington Post:

“..Bush's four-year-old decision to direct the National Security Agency, without obtaining warrants, to monitor international phone calls and e-mails of Americans when one of the parties is considered a possible terrorist suspect.”

That might be the fairest on-the-fly description of the program I’ve seen from the Post or any other large newspaper. Let’s hope he assigned it a shortcut for future use.
