... We Open Them First.

Why would Bush issue a signing statement affirming his right to open anyone's mail without a warrant?

I'm guessing it's a CYA maneuver. It's probably been going on for years, and now that Congressional investigations are possible, the administration wants to prepare some retroactive legal(istic) defense.

This theory isn't a total shot in the dark. Bush is, at the moment, getting lawyered up.

(Also, wasn't there a case a couple of years ago where DHS or FBI was intercepting some journalists' mail without going through the courts? Can't remember the specifics right now and my files are in disarray...)
