Ignoring our rights

Mr. Ackerman, I am appalled that you would defend the use of secret wiretaps by the Bush administration in direct contravention of the law of the land. This administration is trampling on the Constitutional rights of the citizenry. They are arresting and imprisoning people without warrants or due process, they have outed a CIA agent (by law, an act of treason) because her husband dared to contradict their lies. They are engaging in torture, and they are lying and obfuscating to no end. If this were happening in any other country, I am sure that The Union would call it what it is Ð a police state ruled by tyrants.
