Bush Administration Caught Lying — Again

ABC News is breaking finally running a story on NSA spying on Americans. Bush administration officials, including the President and General Michael Hayden (current CIA Director), repeatedly denied that the US was listening in on phone conversations of Americans. This claim is directly refuted by two former military linguists who took part in the eavesdropping program.

AFTERDOWNINGSTREET.ORG got this one OVER A YEAR AGO, but the pissants in the US media mainstream had their heads up their assholes as usual.

Yet another impeachable offense by the most criminal administration in American history?

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley has written extensively on these issues.

CNN has the story.

ABC News

"Despite pledges by President George W. Bush and American intelligence officials to the contrary, hundreds of US citizens overseas have been eavesdropped on as they called friends and family back home, according to two former military intercept operators who worked at the giant National Security Agency (NSA) center in Fort Gordon, Georgia.

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), called the allegations "extremely disturbing" and said the committee has begun its own examination.

'We have requested all relevant information from the Bush Administration,' Rockefeller said Thursday. 'The Committee will take whatever action is necessary.'

'These were just really everyday, average, ordinary Americans who happened to be in the Middle East, in our area of intercept and happened to be making these phone calls on satellite phones,' said Adrienne Kinne, a 31-year old US Army Reserves Arab linguist assigned to a special military program at the NSA's Back Hall at Fort Gordon from November 2001 to 2003"
