Administration Pulls Back on Surveillance Agreement


WASHINGTON, May 1 Senior Bush administration officials told Congress on

Tuesday that they could not pledge that the administration would

continue to seek warrants from a secret court for a domestic

wiretapping program, as it agreed to do in January.

Rather, they argued that the president had the constitutional authority

to decide for himself whether to conduct surveillance without warrants.
