Federal Judge: Bush Administration Was Criminal Conspiracy

Federal judge Vaughn Walker ruled today that the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance program was illegal.

This has been obvious ever since the New York Times blew the lid off of the National Security Administration’s massive surveillance operation in late 2005. It is amazing that the issue is still open to dispute.

Unfortunately, there is not a snowball’s chance in hell that busloads of White House, Justice Department, and National Security Administration officials will be going to jail for this crime.

    If the indictments do start to trickle out for these governmental felons – sorry for the redundancy – will the Times be also charged for covering up these illegal activities for a year or better?

    Pardon me, I may be missing something here but is it a problem that something may be illegal?

    Ameribunko, Land of the Leveraged, Home of the Fraudulent. Laws, like taxes are for the little people. Shame on you for bringing the law into a discussion of National Security.

    Dirk – this is absolutely, positively the worst day of the year for comments like that.

    This is Census Day. Unless people believe the government follows the law, they might not divulge their personal information.

    I have been intrigued to see how the Census Bureau rolls out the “it would be against the law for the feds to use your response against you” nostrum. And most of the media swallows it and repeats it…

    Wes, didn’t George W. already issue the editors or publisher a secret pardon?

    There probably is not a snowball’s chance in hell that ANYONE will be going to jail.
