Alabama with nukes?

Remember the press conference not so long ago where Bush said that he 'didn't worry much about that guy' (or something along those lines), in reference to Osama bin Laden? Appearently Washington hopes you don't, because now they're playing the Osama card for all it's worth in support of a new law that will (among other things) make the illegal NSA wiretappings legal.

This must be setting some sort of record for mendacity and hypocricy. Woops, we encouraged our chief intelligence and counter-intelligence agency to do something illegal. Something patently illegal. And this time we're actually taking something resembling flak for it. So we change the law to make it legal. Oh, and we justify that change by invoking a bogeyman that we very publicly stated that we 'didn't care much about' only a couple of months ago...
