Bush: We dont listen to Americans phone calls

Bush had to say this:

First, our international activities strictly target al Qaeda and their known affiliates. Al Qaeda is our enemy, and we want to know their plans. Second, the government does not listen to domestic phone calls without court approval. Third, the intelligence activities I authorized are lawful and have been briefed to appropriate members of Congress, both Republican and Democrat. Fourth, the privacy of ordinary Americans is fiercely protected in all our activities.

They dont? This article says otherwise

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren’t suspected of any crime.

So does This one

The government is secretly collecting records of ordinary Americans’ phone calls in an effort to build a database of every call made within the country, it was reported Thursday.

Our government wouldnt lie to us about violating our privacy now would they?

  1. To hear the few(Terrorists) he has to listen to all of us. I don’t agree with Bush on much of anything, but I agree on this. Terrorists are here and we need to do what is necessary to find them. Weed out the normal phone calls and investigate those that sound threatning to the USA.
