Strong support for NSA Surveillance

New Poll shows support for NSA surveillance.

"WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 (Reuters) - More than half of Americans approve of the White House's domestic eavesdropping program to fight terrorism, but nearly two-thirds worry that Americans' civil liberties could be threatened by U.S. antiterrorism programs, according to a New York Times/CBS News Poll.

The poll, published in Friday's New York Times, found Americans were more accepting of the surveillance program if they believed it was intended to protect them.

Fifty-three percent of those surveyed said they approved of President George W. Bush's decision to authorize eavesdropping without prior court approval "in order to reduce the threat of terrorism," The Times reported."

Again, the President didn't authorize anything that any other President didn't authorize in a time a war. The problem is that the rabid socialist antiwar left dosen't believe we are at war - thinks 9/11 was an isolated incident or at worst a Bush/Cheney/Neocon conspiracy - and thus will do everything to sap our security so long as they can "get Bush". Sad.

But to intelligent people who know that we are -as President Bush has consistantly said - in a long protracted struggle against a non-traditional but nonetheless radical murderous enemy, they know that extreme times need extreme measures to insure the safey of our Nation.

When people sit down and think about it, look at their families and their safety, they agree. Do what it takes.
