It all happened in 2007—Bush was president.
I have often said no supporters of Bush that the Patriot Act and other surveillance policies would end up coming back to hurt someone or harm something. It did.
George W. Bush was on Jay Leno last night. He made lots of people miss him. But regardless of his personal or Africa policies, it did much to change the nation forever.
An example is this, a 2007 agreement to not only continue the surveillance of Americans, but also British citizens who also committed no crimes.
