"Critics have stepped up their attacks on the President for authorizing the National Security Agency to listen to international communications of known al Qaeda members or affiliated terrorists during a time of war. The American people expect their leaders to stay a step ahead of the enemy, and the National Security Agency authorization is a critical tool in the War on Terror that saves lives and protects civil liberties at the same time."
- Scott McClellan, White House Press Secretary
Now, I don't think people are criticizing any action that stops terrorists. What we criticize is the violation of American Citizen's Civil Liberties and Violations of the Constitution. They spin it their way to politicize it. We understand and need to see through that spin.
