    Why don't you give a sh!t? I had no idea you were a cop. Otherwise I would think this would concern you.

    When are cops gonna realize that they are SERVANTS of the PEOPLE?!

    From the article:

    "An audit by the inspector general last year found the FBI demanded personal records without official authorization or otherwise collected more data than allowed in dozens of cases between 2003 and 2005. Additionally, last year's audit found that the FBI had underreported to Congress how many national security letters were requested by more than 4,600.

    Dozens? Sorry that doesn't really bother me I have seen more breaches during other presidency's go untouched I really could care less about these witch-hunts, ****'em they did now live with the bed they made.

    So when FBI files sat on the first ladies desk, I guess that was ok?

    Sick of the monkey farting hypocrites. (Not you WPF, but WW83)

    What witch hunt? This is about the FBI violating constitutional rights, you are the one linking it to Bush and "Presidencies."

    It's really sad that your indifference to stuff like this is probably what will enable the destruction of your civil rights when you need them most. The "it doesn't affect me" attitude is exactly how the Nazis came to power.

    It has been going on since before JFK, our country has survived, it will continue to survive. I am not going to put this at the feet of 1 man because of a political vendetta.

    No but all the lefties think it is OK, because it was not Bush.

    I know they hate when Clinton is brought up, but they didn't open their mouths than, but now they want to.:mad:

    That would be a great point if it were in any way true. I'm a "lefty" and I have a huge problem with this whenever it happens, no matter what presidency.

    To act as if police powers and constitutional right aren't violated more under Republican administrations than Democratic ones is laughable, and I challenge you to give me a concrete example.

    That's not it, IMO.
    Bush's arrogance and flying in the facce of reason piszes me off, even if he was "technically" within the law. He has pushed the envelope more than any other Pres. since FDR, but FDR had an attack on US soil to trigger his response not to mention a formal declaration of war from Congress. Bush played his own game and got away with it, in the process, costing thousands of American lives and tens of thousands of Iraqi lives for no good reason. Put on top of that the $ trillion...how does that compare to what CLinton did? I don't get it.

    What was 9/11 then? Wasn't that an attack on US soil? How does Iraq relate to the FBI reviewing people's personal information without a warrant? The FBI should abide by the law regardless. Be it FDR's FBI, Slick Willy's, or GW's.

    Ya this was covered before. I have a brohter in the FBI in Florida, and asked him about this. His response was that the orders themselves for information were fine...what was not fine was the amount of information provided (meaning too much) by the phone companies and banks etc.... The agents themselves I think did not know the specifics and worked on the information provided....which turned out to be a violation of the law. Confusing enough?
