Spying on your own population is the norm these days

Bush defends phone-tapping policy:

"Mr Bush also said he expected a "full investigation" into who leaked information about the wiretap programme.

"My personal opinion is it was a shameful act for someone to disclose this very important programme in a time of war," he said.

"The fact that we're discussing this programme is helping the enemy," he added.

Politicians struggle to deal with the ambiguous, vacuous, dual-use nature of nuclear technology, but leave sorting out the ambiguous, vacuous dual-use nature of their own laws to revolutions and the politically argumentative. It's good to ask questions.
