Report: Bush Permitted NSA to Spy in U.S.

NEW YORK – The National Security Agency has eavesdropped, without warrants, on as many 500 people inside the United States at any given time since 2002, the New York Times reported Friday.

That year, following the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush authorized the NSA to monitor the international phone calls and international e-mails of hundreds – perhaps thousands – of people inside the United States, the Times reported.

The Times said it delayed publication of the report for a year because the White House said it could jeopardize continuing investigations and alert would-be terrorists that they might be under scrutiny. The Times said it omitted information from the story that administration officials argued could be useful to terrorists.</i>

KGB anyone?
