In the aftermath of 9/11, President Bush and his top advisors declared that the struggle against terrorism would be nothing less than a wara new kind of war that would require new tactics, new tools, and a new mind-set.Bush's Lawis the unprecedented account of how the Bush administration employed its "war on terror" to mask the most radical remaking of American justice in generations. On orders from the highest levels of the administration, counterterrorism officials at the FBI, the NSA, and the CIA were asked to play roles they had never played before. But with that unprecedented power, administration officials butted up againstor disregarded altogetherthe legal restrictions meant to safeguard Americans' rights, as they gave legal sanction to covert programs and secret interrogation tactics, a swept up thousands of suspects in the drift net. Eric Lichtblau, who has covered the Justice Department and national security issues for the duration of the Bush administration, details not only the development of the NSA's warrantless wiretapping programinitiated by the vice president's office in the weeks after 9/11but also the intense pressure that the White House brought to bear onThe New York Timesto thwart his story on the program. Bush's Lawis an unparalleled and authoritative investigative report on the hidden internal struggles over secret programs and policies that tore at the constitutional fabric of the country and, ultimately, brought down an attorney general. From the Hardcover edition.
