"This is about wartime surveillance of the enemy," he said. "And we don't ask our commanders to go to the court and ask for approval while they're trying to gain intelligence on the enemy." (Scott McClellan, chief White House spokesman) - http://www.nytimes.com/2006/01/25/politics/25cnd-nsa.html?hp&ex=1138251600&en=b63be84d96257038&ei=5094&partner=homepage

So is he actually saying there is a war, akin to the one the US Military which is the strongest military in the World, would fight overseas, is currently happening within the border of the US? That is how I read it.

So I have no problem with surveillance, in fact I think it is quite necessary in many applications, though find it amusing that Bush is trying to legitimize the illegal surveillance his administration has been performing. I don't understand why people still put up with 9/11 as an excuse for everything.
