Default Bush got caught in a HUGE lie...re: illegal spying

Here is what George Bush said in Buffalo, New York on April 20, 2004 at 9:49am:

[ QUOTE ]
Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so. It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution.

[/ QUOTE ]

This is a man with no respect for the citizenry of the US. He is on a power-grab that surpasses Nixon in terms of decieving the American People and contempt for the constitution.

This is a pretty good source:

This is where I found it:

And for the heck of it:

From the publication Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents:

State department press release April 20, 2004:

Also, Ashcroft's testimony before the 9/11 commission speaks a little to this point:
[ QUOTE ]
ASHCROFT: Let me comment that in large measure, the Patriot Act extended powers in the fight against terror that were already well- understood powers in the fight against drugs and organized crime, so that we weren`t treading down new constitutional territory. The multi-point wire tap or the roving wire tap had been in existence for 14 years and 15 years. And the ability, for instance, to subpoena business records from grand juries had been in existence for a long time.

Now the FISA provisions that relate to it are different from grand juries. A grand jury, frankly, operates with the U.S. attorney or an assistant U.S. attorney reaching over on a stack of forms and filling it out, and taking it out and serving it. It`s never seen by a judge unless someone resists it or protests it.

Under FISA, you can`t have an order without first seeing the federal judge. Or unless it`s an emergency order, and then it has to be brought before a judge within 72 hours. So there`s a lot of safeguards here. I`d like to talk to you about it. It is important to our national security

Nice, the more credibility he and his men loses, the better the future looks for all of us.

Do you still dispute the simple, majestic truth of the statement: "Bush lied." ?

Where is the lie?

Trying to match a quote about domestic spying to international spying authorized by the Patriot Act does not create a lie. Bush was making a truthful statement when viewed in context.

Once again you guys are claiming a lie where no lie exists. Big surprise. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

This is great!

So, Bush says "Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so."

But now he admits engaging in domestic wiretaps without "a court order", completely outside the FISA context, AT THE TIME HE MADE THIS STATEMENT, and you say it was "truthful" "when viewed in context"????

Please explain, this should be absolutely fabulous. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
