The perfidy of the New York Times

Guess what? The New York Times was for financial surveillance before it was against it-or at least against it being done secretly.

The cost of these plots suggests that putting Osama bin Laden and other international terrorists out of business will require more than diplomatic coalitions and military action. Washington and its allies must also disable the financial networks used by terrorists.
The Bush administration is preparing new laws to help track terrorists through their money-laundering activity and is readying an executive order freezing the assets of known terrorists. Much more is needed, including stricter regulations, the recruitment of specialized investigators and greater cooperation with foreign banking authorities. There must also must be closer coordination among America's law enforcement, national security and financial regulatory agencies.

The New York Times does not really care one iota whether we win the war on terror. All they are looking for is the latest stone they can get their inky little hands on to toss at the President, the security of this country be damned.
