Bush switches in three hours from refusing to discuss warrantless wiretaps, in order to protect intelligence sources and methods, to confirming their existence and defending them. Will anyone notice?
At 6 p.m. EST Friday evening the President refused to discuss his secret orders for warrantless wiretapping because it would endanger national security to discuss intelligence sources and methods.
At noon EST Saturday the President confirmed that he had authorized warrantless wiretapping and defended that action as necessary for national security.
At no time will any mainstream journalist notice the contradiction. Winston Smith would be proud of them.
Update Wrong! Good for Tim Russert.
