Bill O’Reilly’s guest host John Kasich told Karl Rove that Americans should be concerned about losing rights to the warrantless wiretapping program. Rove replied, “but that’s not a worry that we should really have because, look, the surveillance program intercepts messages from people abroad. It’s not just designed to listen in on Americans talking to their neighbors. The only way you can take a U.S. citizen and listen in on their phone number is to go get a court order.”
