A version of this essay originally appeared in .
I fought the FISA process then, too.
"Mr. Dean, who was President Nixon's counsel at the time of Watergate, said that President Bush is 'the first President to admit to an impeachable offense.' Today, Mr. Dean confirmed his statement."
Bush publicly confessed. Why hasn't he been arrested?
To put things in context, Dean also said something fairly similar (about a different topic) in his book that came out earilier this year (Worse than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush, page 155):
Congress must act to thoroughly investigate the President's actions.
I think this is just down right an invadsion of te peoples privitcy. The president is over stepping his boundaries. Regraudless of him having to protect the people, it is just not right. Well then again I don't know why it's a shock to everyone. everythings been tapped without you knowing for years. So its really not all Bushes fought if you think about. But still you can't blame it on dead president right. And then again it is his fought. you know why? Because he kept it going and didn't stop to think how we the people would feel about it.

IF there were a little more information people would know the story a little better and wouldn't like make stuff up and post it on the internet like i have already noticed there would be less rumors and people could debate over it more so that would be good? I don't know it also might cause more trouble for the officials
I'd like to point out a small mistake in the above. You write:
Now, that's not technically incorrect, but somewhat confusing, as it
may lead readers to believe that the separation of powers was actually
"invented" by the USA's founding fathers, so I think it's worth
pointing out that it actually goes back to Montesquieu, a French
philosopher from the 18th century.
