As legal sanction was given to covert surveillance and interrogation tactics, internal struggles brewed over programs and policies that threatened to tear at the constitutional fabric of the country.Bushs Law is the alarming account of the White Houses efforts to prevent the publication of Eric Lichtblaus exposé on warrantless wiretapping—and an authoritative examination of how the Bush administration employed its “war on terror” to mask the most radical remaking of American justice in generations.From the Trade Paperback edition.
