Thomas Not Overly Concerned With Secret Taping

Laramie, Wy – Senator Craig Thomas admits he is becoming less concerned that the Bush administration has been monitoring overseas phone calls and e-mails of U-S citizens. Thomas says he was first troubled when he first heard about it, but he thinks it is becoming less of a concern. I'm anxious to get all the facts. Because what we have heard up till now are people who just wanted to attack the President. Now it starts to come out that this is something that has been through the courts, its been through the members and its been going on for a number of years and it really hasn't been a surprise idea.
But Thomas would support hearings on the action, so they can get some better justification for the practice.
