The press and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are locked in a hot debate about whether President Bush has violated the constitution by authorizing warrantless surveillance on US citizens suspected of having links with terrorist organizations. President Bush says that he has consulted some Congressional people about the act. He insists that he has not overstepped the constitutional bounds as the commander in chief in a time of war.
