"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Can you hear me now?

Apparently the NSA, while busy snooping (illegally) on the conversations of various American servicemen overseas (and later passing the recordings around for a laugh) were also spying on bigger fish. According to a report from ABC News, the NSA under Bush was spying on the private conversations of British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
A former communications intercept operator says U.S. intelligence snooped on the private lives of two of America's most important allies in fighting al Qaeda: British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Iraq's first interim president, Ghazi al-Yawer.

Faulk says his top secret clearance at Ft. Gordon gave him access to an intelligence data base, called "Anchory," where he says he saw the file on then-British prime minister Tony Blair in 2006.
Tony Blair. Really... Unreal. The crimes of this administration defy belief.
