Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire.

The following is a quote from a speech Bush gave in Buffalo, in April of 2004. It is available from the whitehouse website.

So the first thing I want you to think about is, when you hear Patriot Act, is that we changed the law and the bureaucratic mind-set to allow for the sharing of information. It’s vital. And others will describe what that means.

Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. 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.

This is more than a year after he started the procedure of the NSA wiretapping American citizens without getting a constitutionally mandated warrant.

Lying Bastard.

If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention!
