Bushie seems very upset that his secret is out

The president had harsh words for those who talked about the program to the media, saying their actions were illegal and improper.

"As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have," he said. "The unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk."

"Illegal and improper?
Now we have George W Bush telling us what is illegal and improper?
What's next?
O.J. Simpson lecturing us on the evils of Spouse abuse?
Besides...let's just pretend for a moment that we actually believe that Osama bin Laden could, all on his own, bring down three (yes, 3) buildings in New York City and severely damage the Pentagon with three hijacked aircraft; would we not, also, have to believe that he and his organization are smart enough to realize that communications were, more probably than not,  being monitored.
We strongly suspected it, so why wouldn't Osama.
We have heard numerous reports that he and his top people stopped using satellite phones and other communication devices which they feared could be tracked after the attack.
Bush must release the names of those people in the U.S. whose communications with people overseas have been monitored, to a select group of members of congress. Let them decide if the NSA is really monitoring members of Al Qaeda or are they monitoring any American who has contact with people over seas, Arab people in particular.
Those Americans should be informed.
