''Gore Speaks on Pres. Bush Today'' (UPDATED)

"The American Constitution Society and the Liberty Coalition hosts a speech by Fmr. Vice Pres. Al Gore at the DAR Hall in Washington. Gore speaks about the limits of executive power, the issue of monitoring domestic communications and the authorization of the use of torture in the war against terrorism."-from C-SPAN. You can WATCH/LISTEN live at 9AM PT here.

Update: Howard-Empowered People has this excerpt as well as a link to the full text on RAW STORY. The AP has this story: "Gore Assails Domestic Wiretapping Program."

Update II: CNN has Gore: "Resist Bush's 'excessive power grab'." Tidbit:

"Former Vice President Al Gore called on Congress and the public to resist what he called "a gross and excessive power grab" by the Bush administration amid the war on terrorism, declaring that "our Constitution is at risk."

Gore said the use of the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans without court approval shows that President Bush "has been breaking the law repeatedly and persistently."
"A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government," he said."
