A good link, but this is about spying against foreign diplomats on US soil.



[ QUOTE ]
The source added that U.S. spying on the U.N. isn't new.

"It's part of the job," the intelligence source said. "Everyone knows it's being done."


[/ QUOTE ]


[ QUOTE ]
The Washington Post printed a 514-word article on a back page with the headline "Spying Report No Shock to U.N," while the Los Angeles Times emphasized from the outset that U.S. spy activities at the United Nations are "long-standing," Solomon wrote.

[/ QUOTE ]


The title of your thread is "Domestic spying is about politics, not security" and this link is about the lead-up to the Iraq war.

Still, the point about the Bush administration infringing on civil liberties is more than valid.


[ QUOTE ]
According to one former official, "The administration pushed the envelope by tapping their home phones."

Of course the kool-aid drinking moonbats of the authoritarian wing of the right will try to make excuses.

And of course the kool-aid drinking moonbats of the authoritarian wing of the left will try to convince us that they should be given this position of power instead of the kool-aid drinking moonbats of the authoritarian wing of the right.

The source does not seem to be a credible one. Yet I'd like to hear what Richardson, Biden, and Bolton now have to say about this in light of the FISA flap. The reasons the administration have given for circumventing the FISA court don't hold water. It is not an outrageous surmise that they felt that some of the taps they wanted would not have been approved.
