Shrub's remark based on urban legend
Thanks to The Daily Curmudgeon, we now learn that Shrub's recent comment that Bin Laden was tipped off by the media that the U.S. was listening in to his cell phone communication was an urban myth. The article published by the ultra-conservative Washington Times (Aug. 21, 1998) appeared two years after Time magazine gave Bin Laden this startling information (that U.S. intel might be trying to listen to his calls!) Of course, how this justifies listening in on virtually any call by American citizens without a warrant (even a secret one by a rubber-stamp court) is beyond me. I guess I need to watch Fox News more often.
