Yet Another lie from the Bush administration

The lie:

Bush: The eavesdropping program is a "vital tool" against terrorism.
Vice President Dick: It has saved "thousands of lives."

The truth:

F.B.I. officials repeatedly complained to the spy agency that the unfiltered information was swamping investigators.

But virtually all of them, current and former officials say, led to dead ends or innocent Americans.

The National Security Agency sent a steady stream of telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and names to the F.B.I. in search of terrorists. The stream soon became a flood, requiring hundreds of agents to check out thousands of tips a month. This "vita tool" led to school teachers, old men at the gym, and other Americans.

Bush you are a Liar.

I got this information from the NY Times.
