Edited on Wed May-23-07 09:00 AM by L. Coyote
Obstructing Justice?? NY Times withheld info before 2004 election about Bush's impeachable offenses. Unbelievable in a "democracy."

This report also reflects how many actors/agencies were involved in the illegalities: FBI, DIA, Homeland Security, CIA, more...

..... growing controversy over President Bushís decision to order the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on U.S. citizens inside the country without the legally required court warrants. Bushís decision was first revealed in the New York Times in mid-December. The Times published the expose after holding the story for more than a year under pressure from the White House. The paper reportedly first uncovered the illegal order prior to the 2004 election. When the editors at the Times decided last month to go ahead with the article, President Bush personally summoned the paperís publisher, Arthur Sulzberger, and executive editor, Bill Keller, to the Oval Office in an attempt to talk them out of running the story. Since the story broke, calls for Congressional hearings and the possible impeachment of the president have intensified. Conservative legal experts have even admitted Bush may have committed an impeachable offense by ordering the NSA to break the law.

................the Washington Post is reporting that the NSA passed on records of intercepted email and phone calls to other government agencies including the FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the CIA and the Department of Homeland Security. This news come on the heels of several other reports that the FBIís Joint Terrorism Task Force, military intelligence and local police departments have all been engaged in monitoring peaceful groups including Greenpeace, PETA - the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Catholic Worker, anti-war groups and even bicyclists in New York City........
