Another ad from the ACLU on Bush's illegal domestic wiretapping program. This one's kindof topical:

Though I have to say that the FBI wasn't bugging King "in the name of national security"- they were bugging King specifically in an effort to collect dirt and discredit him, and through him all those uppity blacks who dared to step forward and demand that the US live up to its ideals. It was outright political surveillance, complete with blackmail attempts to get King to shut up, and its a prime example of why wiretapping and surveillance operations must be subjected to the strictest oversight.


Careful, watch what you say: this blog might be under surveillance... ;) :P

And the bugging was authorised by JFK's Democrat administration, by Bobby no less. Don't recall the Dems being up in arms then.
