News reports indicate the CIA was wiretapping Princess Dianna's phones up until the night of her untimely death.
This would have occurred during the Clinton Administration, and apparently, they didn't have a warrant. Gasp.
Wingnuts across America are coming all unhinged at the blatant hypocrisy of the left for not crucifying Bill Clinton like we have Dubya for his warrantless eavesdropping.
You see, we on the left are hypocrites for opposing Bush and remaining silent on Clinton for warrantless wiretapping. Clinton is a Democrat and Bush is a Republican, this is the only difference they see.
They fail to see one was legal and the other is clearly illegal.
The applicable law governing wiretaps is FISA, which is limited to U.S. citizens in the United States. Princess Di was neither.
Bush broke the law on this issue, whereas Bill Clinton did not. However, Clinton was crucified for breaking the law (perjury) during the Lewinsky matter. At that time, Republicans demanded the law be upheld as the highest obligation for lawmakers.
I find Republicans to be shallow and wishy-washy hypocrites, only applying their deeply held convictions when it is convenient and politically advantageous to do so.
