Bush Began Spying on You BEFORE Sept. 11

The Bush administration's entire argument that spying on U.S. citizens was necessary to fight the war on terror is a complete lie, just like their reasons for invading Iraq. reports:

The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court....

``The Bush Administration asserted this became necessary after 9/11,'' plaintiff's lawyer Carl Mayer said in a telephone interview. ``This undermines that assertion.''

There was no war on terror before September 11, so why did Bush reportedly decide to start the process enabling him to illegally spy on Americans?

America deserves better than George W. Bush.
