President Bush is breaking the law, where's the outrage?

The domestic spying program is a dragnet that has led to intrusion into the lives of innocent Americans. The Bush administration insists that the illegal wiretapping program is only applied to suspected terrorists. This is a lie. Now, both the New York Times and the Washington Post have reported that the program is a fishing expedition that often leads to innocent Americans. On Monday, the attorney general would not confirm that the program didn't eavesdrop on innocent Americans. I'm not ready to relinquish the privacy of myself and all my neighbors just to satisfy the insatiable lust for power of this administration. I am appalled at the complacency of this nation. What will it take to get our attention?
