It is a very sad and troubling day for America when the highest officials in our land can break the law, then then turn around and punish those who would reveal their crime.
But that is exactly what is happening in George Bush's post-democratic American dictatorship.
In its initial report on President Bush's illegal spying program, The New York Times said nearly a dozen current and former officials had agreed to discuss the program on condition of anonymity, because of their concerns about the operation's legality and oversight.
Now, The U.S. Justice Department is investigating who disclosed that a secret and illegal domestic eavesdropping operation approved by Bush, in clear violation of the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) .
Americans, don't let anyone scare you out of your freedoms. There are ways to deal with the world's problems without decending further into an Orwellian police state.
