    Despite assurances to the contrary, the National Security Agency is spying on the telephone conversations of ordinary Americans, including phone sex sessions, according to two former military whistleblowers who came forward.

    From the article:
    If the allegations prove true, that would fly in the face of assertions by President Bush that innocent conversations would never be intercepted.

    Bush said in December 2005, after The New York Times published its original article on the government's warrantless wiretapping efforts, that the NSA program would "intercept the international communications of people with known links to al Qaeda and related terrorist organizations. Before we intercept these communications, the government must have information that establishes a clear link to these terrorist networks."

    I didn't know phone sex was associated with terrorism and al Qaeda!

    The full article can be found at:

    Read it and weep.

    Ya, it's shocking isn't it?

    See... this is EXACTLY what liberals were worried about.

    WTF is wrong with people. Clearly innocent peoples civil liberties are being abused.

    Just another thing conservatives were wrong about.

    For decades now the government has been listening and the liberals have never done a thing about it, you are fooling yourself if you think that will change now.

    Do we need to come up with an NSA disclaimer before engaging in phone sex?
