More On Pre-9/11 Domestic Spying

I was just looking back at Dave Neiwert’s blog for today, and I found a new entry, with a link to americablog.

It’s worth following the links because it implicates Gozales (and a couple of other folks) in lying to Congress. Whether or not Congress will investigate further is questionable. Whenever something happens, say Watergate or Iran-Contra, that threatens the office of the Presidency, Congress ultimately finds a way to let the perps off the hook. In order not to “disgrace” the office, maybe. The system rallies to save itself.

This is important because, if true, it negates Bush's entire argument that the spying was needed to fight the war on terror. There was no war on terror before September 11, so why did Bush reportedly decide to start the process enabling him to illegally spy on Americans?

The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, lawyers claimed June 23 in court papers filed in New York federal court....

``The Bush Administration asserted this became necessary after 9/11,'' plaintiff's lawyer Carl Mayer said in a telephone interview. ``This undermines that assertion.''
