Good News!

From The Nation...
Bush Backs Down on Warrantless Wiretaps

In a letter sent today to Senate Judiciary Committee leaders, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales writes that, 'the president has determined not to reauthorize the Terrorist Surveillance Program when the current authorization expires.

'Any electronic surveillance that was occurring as part of the Terrorist Surveillance Program will now be conducted subject to the approval of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court,' explains the attorney general's letter."
I'm not sure if this comes from the President, who still seems to be in denial about election results in November, but it's good news nonetheless.

It's a new day.
