Bush broke the law?

I find it amusing that so many people, who have written “letters to the editor” accusing Bush of breaking the law with his domestic spying think that they are the ultimate keeper of legal knowledge in the United States. The case of Bush’s domestic spying was tried in a Federal Court in 2002, thanks to a lawsuit brought by the ACLU. The court ruled that Bush was within his rights to conduct the spying. The case was appealed to a Federal Appellate Court, and again, the court ruled that Bush was within his rights. The case was then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, allowing the Appellate Court ruling to stand.
