It looks like it's the bastard's last stand.

Feingold says what Bush is doing is illegal; The coverup begins!

In response to Bush's radio address:
'Sad day'
Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin said Saturday: "There's not a single senator or member of Congress who thought we were authorizing wiretaps."
"If he needs a wiretap, the authority is already there -- the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act," Feingold said. "They can ask for a warrant to do that and even if there's an emergency situation they can go for 72 hours as long as they give notice at the end of 72 hours."
Feingold said "it's a sad day" in light of what he heard Bush say.
"He authorized these wiretaps even though there was no specific law allowing it," Feingold said. "He's trying to claim somehow that the authorization for the Afghanistan attack after 9/11 permitted this and that's just absurd."

I hope to have a full transcript and video of ALL Feingold's statement soon. It is chilling.

UPDATE. DAMN! the coverup begins! The White Ho' f****** have scrubbed the transcript. What Bush actually said and the WH transcript says he said do not add up. I will try to get independent audio/video of what really went down.

It looks like it's the bastard's last stand.
