Lies and the Lying Liars

How handy of Kip at A Stitch in Haste to compile this all for us:

From our President:

"Any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order," [Bush] said on April 20, 2004 in Buffalo, New York."Nothing has changed, by the way.

"When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so," he added.

On April 19, 2004, Bush said the Patriot Act enabled law-enforcement officials to use "roving wiretaps," which are not fixed to a particular telephone, against terrorism, as they had been against organized crime."You see, what that meant is if you got a wiretap by court order -- and by the way, everything you hear about requires court order, requires there to be permission from a FISA court, for example," he said in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

From the Vice-President:

Vice President Dick Cheney offered similar reassurances at a Patriot Act event in June 2004, saying that "all of the investigative tools" under the law "require the approval of a judge before they can be carried out."

And they criticized the Clinton administration for its problem's telling the truth?
