Oh, dear ... it's going to be kind of hard to justify this little indelicacy in the name of fighting terrorism:
President Bush and other top officials in his administration used the National Security Agency to secretly wiretap the home and office telephones and monitor private email accounts of members of the United Nations Security Council in early 2003 to determine how foreign delegates would vote on a U.N. resolution that paved the way for the U.S.-led war in Iraq, NSA documents show.
Because, as we all know, there are only six degrees of separation between members of the U.N. Security Council and Osama bin Laden. No, wait ... that's Kevin Bacon. Never mind.
