NSA Wiretap Ruling

Responding to a question at a brief news conference today in Camp David, President Bush said he "stongly disagreed" with the federal court ruling. Bush tried to link the "terrorist surveillance program" with the British action to disrupt a supposed terrorist plot to down passenger aircraft. He said he expected the Justice Department's appeal to be upheld.

George Washington University law professor Jonathon Turley explains the implications of the federal court ruling to Keith Olberman on MSNBC's "Countdown." Turley said, "If a court of appeals upholds this judge, it means that the president could well have committed a federal crime, not once, but thirty times. That's the difficult implication."
