Bush pulls plug on probe
Thanks to the Globe forr covering this. There is not much, we, the people can do about the continuinng tragedy going on in the middle east, but there is something we can do about the double felon in the White House.
Bush pulls plug on probe - The Boston Globe:
IN THE BUSH administration's campaign to consolidate power that had once been exercised by Congress or the courts , it has taken one step after another to avoid congressional and judicial review. Now it turns out that President Bush himself blocked an internal Justice Department inquiry into the administration's decision to eavesdrop on domestic phone calls without a warrant from a judge, as required by a 1978 law. The short-circuiting of that investigation makes it all the more important that Congress act.
