A must-read story. Again, and again, and again, and again, Bush reassured everyone who questioned the sweeping powers claimed under the USA PATRIOT act, that all the wiretapping required a court order and was under strict judicial oversight.

You have to read the article, read the quotes. Again and again and again he specifically cites the judicial oversight that did not exist to reassure people they were safe from government intrusion.
