ABA Slams Bush Over Domestic Spying

The American Bar Association joined the chorus of legal voices calling Bush’s domestic spying program illegal.

The American Bar Association told President George W. Bush on Monday to either stop domestic eavesdropping without a warrant or get the law changed to make it legal.

“We hope the President will listen,” association president Michael Grecco told reporters after the more than 500 members of its policy-setting body passed a resolution saying that both national security and constitutional freedoms needed to be protected.

“We do not say surveillance should be stopped, only that it comply with the law,” said Neal Sonnett, a Miami lawyer who headed the task force formed to look at the issue not long after the spying program came to light in December.
