What the president said

Okay, this is off the White House website. It's dated July 14, 2004. Here's what he said:

THE PRESIDENT: Let me -- that's a great question. A couple of things that are very important for you to understand about the Patriot Act. First of all, any action that takes place by law enforcement requires a court order. In other words, the government can't move on wiretaps or roving wiretaps without getting a court order.

We now know he was using wiretaps without a warrant at that time. So the president out and out lied.
