What Bad Thing Could Possibly Go Wrong Here?

The Bush administration asked Congress Friday to allow monitoring of more foreigners in the United States during intelligence investigations.

The administration wants to be able to monitor foreign nationals on American soil if they are thought to have significant intelligence information, but no known links to a foreign power. Under current law, the government must convince a FISA judge that an individual is an agent of a government, terror group or some other foreign adversary.

Ok, you aren't a member of a terror cell, or another government, but W. thinks you might have some juicy gossip. Let's plant a bug up your ass and make sure. This rule is offensive. It's a way to literally spy on all foreigners when we know they have done nothing to require a loss of civil liberties.

When are we going to say enough is enough?
