Just another example of Bush's rampant deficit spending. Fiscal conservatives, indeed.

In all seriousness, although not stated explicitly, these wiretaps all appear to be in this country--I'm curious to know whether these cases followed the FISA guidelines and what justifications they had to tap. Of course the FBI would never release the information, but it would be interesting to know.

UPDATE: The ACLU wants to know how much national security has been jeopardized because the FBI can't manage their checkbook.

Can you help us out?
