With Power Set to Be Split, Wiretaps Re-emerge as Issue

NYT reported The Bush administration escalated its defense of the National Security Agency’s domestic wiretapping program on Thursday, even as Democrats in Congress vowed to investigate the program aggressively once they assume power.

Investigate all you want, but dont reveal what you find, even to the New York Times, and don't seek to block anything, or you will be held personally responsible for the next attack that could have been foiled before you came into power.
In Washington, President Bush urged that during the lame-duck session that starts next week, Congress pass a bill effectively authorizing the program. And in San Francisco, the Justice Department told a federal court that public scrutiny of the operation risked “exceptionally grave harm to national security.”
