Bush was spying on U.S. Citizens Before 9/11

From the Washington Post:

Former chief executive Joseph P. Nacchio, convicted in April of 19 counts of insider trading, said the NSA approached Qwest more than six months before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to court documents unsealed in Denver this week.
Details about the alleged NSA program have been redacted from the documents, but Nacchio’s lawyer said last year that the NSA had approached the company about participating in a warrantless surveillance program to gather information about Americans’ phone records.

I have to admit this is one that did shock me – I’ve long thought that they were simply opportunistic with their unconstitutional actions, but finding out they were doing this long before they had any “official” reason (or excuse) to do so…
