I swear to GAWD, that I read somewhere that this has been going on since at least 2000, if not earlier. The C.I.A. has this Project Echelon (SP?) that has allowed them to do warrentless wiretapping for years. Google it or sumptin'...
I have Verizon right now. While I know they all suck I'm starting to think I might switch to Qwest.
Ah, Josh, Air America has been talking about this little fact for nearly two weeks. (Even fart joke lady Stephanie Miller has covered it) But welcome to the party, even though you are a little late.
Doesn't it seem that something like this should be covered in depth by the major news outlets? I also heard this a couple of weeks ago on Air America and Keith Olbermann and just can't wrap my head around why this isn't a lead story on the NBC, CBS and ABC nightly news broadcasts? It must be that notorious 'liberal media bias' I always hear about.
Maybe Bush meant September 11 1973, when Salvador Allende's government was overthrown.
I am still trying to understand why/how the Stranger claims to be "alternative" media when they tend towards mainstream media topics.

Oh, man. I can't believe it has come to this. Somehow, Joe Nacchio of all people is going to come the aid of us poor, defenseless, wiretapped Americans? Joe "Insider Trading" Nacchio was able to dump his Qwest stock before it came basically worthless, which decreased the worth of thousands of their employees' pensions. You may remember that he was sentenced to six years in federal prison for it.
I wouldn't rely too heavily on any information that asshole is willing to provide, especially since he's trying to claim that his conviction is retaliation for his refusal to provide documents to the NSA.
"using illegal surveillance tactics seven months before September 11—is, if true—extra embarrassing for Bush."
Or would be, if anything, anything at all, embarrassed Bush. Or, really, even got his attention...
