The New York Times keeps printing "news" that aids and abets those who hate the USA. The most recent example of this is the recent propaganda using a misleading story written by James Risen and Eric Lichtblau which reads in part, "Months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for evidence of terrorist activity without the court-approved warrants ordinarily required for domestic spying."
This has proven to be wrong, and is taken from a book to be released next week by a Viacom publisher. Viacom also owns CBS so one might well suspect that this will also be promoted on "60 Minutes." President Bush has explained his war-time powers, had alerted intelligence committee members of Congress and had also followed up with F.I.S.A. court warrants. These phone calls were NOT domestic, but rather were calls from the Middle East to America. It was revealed by NewsMax that Pelosi and Reid finally confessed that they had been informed by President Bush about these NSA wiretaps and had said nothing back then. Also revealed is that President Clinton had done many similar taps via a program called Echelon. Where were the leaks then to the leftist press?
This NYT "news" was the talk of Congress as the members discussed the renewal of the Patriot Act. Thus a filibuster against the Act renewal was started in Congress by Democrats and a few centrist Republicans.
Seems every time they get their asses handed to them for lying, they come right back and lie some more. All in the name of the Bushhaters who will do ANYTHING to make him look bad.
