Letter to the Editor
Today’s revelations that the Bush administration is using the NSA to spy on Americans without a court order is disturbing for many reasons. Besides the obvious move towards a communistic society the fact that the New York Times sat on this story for more than a year because the White House requested they keep it secret shows that not only are we secretly being spied on, but also that the Bush administration has control over the press. Congress has just passed a bill specifically written to try to get Bush to stop torturing people. I think it’s time to make it illegal for Bush to stop spying on his political enemies by urging Congress to stop the so called “Patriot Act”. The idea that moving towards Communism is a patriotic act is against everything America stands for.
