|Congresswoman Heather Wilson, a New Mexico Republican who chairs the House Subcommittee overseeing the National Security Agency, has just broken ranks with her party, defied Karl Rove, and called for a full Congressional inquiry into the recently-disclosed domestic wiretapping program. We couldn't agree more. Americans deserve to know the full truth about the Administration's warrantless wiretapping program. Does it violate the constitutional rights guaranteed to us by the Fourth amendment? Has this program actually produced any useful information for investigators, or just sent FBI agents on thousands of wild-goose chases? Why did the Administration refuse to seek the warrants it needed through expedited procedures explicitly spelled out in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act? Were Americans spied upon for non-terrorism-related reasons? Only a full Congressional inquiry can answer these questions and determine if the wiretapping program -- which is still ongoing -- is legal and constitutional, and whether or not violations of the law occurred. Call to action Ask your representative to support Congresswoman Wilson's call for a full Congressional inquiry into the Bush Administration's warrantless wiretapping program.|
