Both sides of the aisle came down on the FBI again for misuse of its authority in the “so-called” security letters sent out to tap the personal data of innocent Americans. Get this: Congress warned the FBI that it could “lose its broad power to collect telephone, e-mail and financial records” in the hunt for terrorists. See MSNBC article. It’s like; Johnny was bad so go stand in the corner. The Democrats commented on how this is yet another example of “trampling” on the privacy rights of consumers. More Gonzales incompetence; and just another example of how the Bush administration is still bent on spying on every U.S. household in their march toward an imperial presidency. Hoover may have been a looney, but in those days the FBI was looked up to as the protector of the citizens of this country. Now it’s more like we have to worry about an American version of the KGB.
