The Patriot Act authorizes administrative subpeonas of phone records so you can blame Congress and President for the express existence of this authority.

And worse is the report also in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin:
Mr President - Why is the US Government reporting the activities of US Citizens to a foriegn government?
Why aren't the existing immigration laws being enforced? Why does the Government of Mexico dicate how the US Border Patrol will operate?
Why are You, Mr President, endangering my family by not securing the borders?
I support your impeachment.

At the end [of one memo], we find this gem:
Northern al-Karkh groups are estimated at 40 mujahid, so is the Southern Karkh. They could double that number if necessary. Al-Rassafah groups in general is estimated at 30 mujahidin as I was informed by the commander of al-Rassafah. These are very small numbers compared to the tens of thousands of the enemy troops. How can we increase these numbers?
This plaintive assessment shows how weakened Zarqawi has become at the hands of the Americans. Between the three commands in the Baghdad area, AQ has a grand total of 110 mujahid, admittedly no match for the thousands of American troops in Baghdad and the thousands of Iraqi troops we are training and putting into play. No wonder Zarqawi has given up on suicide missions -- he has almost nothing left.

However, the media uses a different dictionary. One that defines a phone call from New York to Islamabad as a domestic call.
The NSA Program of monitoring international (as defined by Webster) calls from/to suspected terrorists is a legal program. A program with Congressional and Federal court oversight. A program which has been modified to meet objections raised by the FISA Court.
This will be an entertaining confirmation hearing for General Hayden. The man who used his authority to start this NSA Program. A man who acted to prevent more attacks on US soil.
To watch the Democrats assail a man who acted, using the authority he had to actively prevent more attacks, this will be fun.
To watch the Democrats destory themselves by arguing that taking action to protect this country on one own's initative is bad, that he should have waited for specific approval from congress after public debate....
