If he isn't listening to the North Koreans, then who?

Huh??? Huh??? I wanna know and I wanna know NOW!!!

Was Bush surprised by this test? Did he know it was going to happen and just let it happen anyway? Did he know about it and tried to stop it but failed? Let's look at these three scenarios:

1) "Bush surpised..." So the warrant-less wiretapping program isn't working.
2) "Bush knew and did nothing..." Sound familiar? In this case, why conduct illegal wiretaps if you're response will be the same as if you didn't conduct any wiretapping at all?
3) "Bush knew, tried to do something and failed..." Well, this is sure comforting. So even with illegal wiretapping, Bush still cannot do the job?

What do we believe??? North Korea is one of his three "axis of evil," so he must have been listening to them. Or are we suppose to believe there are really only two really, REALLY evil members in that axis and one kinda evil member--two countries that warrant warrant-less wiretapping and one that really doesn't (say, listen illegally to North Koreans only if the NSA spooks have time in between illegally listening to Americans)?

Perhaps if Bush had not spent so much time illegally wiretapping Congressional Dems, environmentalists, Quakers, and moderate Republicans, he could have been legally tapping the phones of North Korean operatives and headed this thing off...

And judging from his lack of success, he hasn't been torturing North Koreans either... :sarcasm:

2. To Team Bush...
The mid-term elections are way more important than some silly old nuclear bomb going off...

7. Where are all the terrorists caught in US Territory?
Really, if this "program" of illegal warrantless wiretapping is so goddamned important, then why, after many years has it produced exactly ZERO arrests, trials or convictions?

Even Clinton had a better record WITHOUT breaking the law.

8. Good point!
It appears the illegal wiretapping program that Bush lusted for is simply not working. Or at least it's not working as far as catching "terrorists." Now, what he really uses it for is another question.

But of course, any "arrests" that come from such warrant-less spying will be some of those so secret we won't know about it. They will be those "unknown victories" we were told about... :eyes:

10. Spying on the North Koreans is legal
they don't need warrants to spy on the citizens of any country in the world other than the US. The legal way to spy on Americans without a warrant is to let MI6 and Mossad do it and exchange the info. They've been doing this all along.

And we are already involved in the conflict with North Korea and have been so since 1950. "The Forgotten War" was not declared by congress but hasn't officially ended either.
