From AFP:

"What we do know about that pervasive wiretapping virtually compels the conclusion that the president of the United States has been breaking the law repeatedly and consistently," Gore said during an event honoring Martin Luther King Jr. here.

Speaking on the US public holiday honoring the slain civil rights hero, the former vice president noted that King was himseld the target of secret FBI wiretaps for several years.

"It is especially important to recall that for the last several years of his life, Doctor King was illegally wiretapped, one of the hundred of thousands of Americans whose private communications were intercepted by the US governement during that period," Gore said....

`"Just one month ago, Americans awoke to the shocking news that in spite of this long settled law the executive branch has been secretly spying on large numbers of Americans for the last four years," Gore said.

Gore called for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate "what many believe are serious violations".
