Bush has inadvertantly signed the OK for spooks to spy on him and his family

Washington DC - (Rioters): Congress is looking very pleased with itself after passing a new surveillance law that has been speedily signed by George W Bush allowing the government to continue secretly monitoring the Bushes' phone calls and e-mails without a warrant.

"Sure we were eavesdropping on the whole Bush mobster family for decades, but it was kinda illegal," DC sources admitted today.

"But now we've gone legit and the National Security Agency doesn't have to worry about being sued.

"Many Democrats and civil rights activists have argued that this new law erodes fundamental American liberties and privacy rights.

"So we extended its powers by stealth and made sure when the President put his moniker to the new law he effectively signed his very own search warrant."

The new law expands the eavesdropping powers to snoop on Bush and his evil family under the very rights he himself has claimed he had a right to exercise with his Terrorist Surveillance Program.

Last weeek Bush Bush has said his original surveillance program was restricted to calls and e-mails involving a suspected terrorist.

The new law has no such limits and allows executive-branch agencies to conduct oversight-free surveillance of all international calls and e-mails.

"The sole requirements are that the intelligence-gathering is 'directed at a person reasonably believed to be located outside the United States'," an NSA source said today.

"But the beauty of this baby is that there is no requirement that either caller be a suspected terrorist, spy, or criminal, just somebody related by blood, money or criminality to the Bush clan."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
