On the "Liberty Tower" ...

I really found The Washington Post's presentation of all sides of the mattter to be sufficient for looking at the case itself. But there is something I haven't seen really pointed out by anyone in all of these articles:

GWB is using "We're still under threat, see this plot?" as an excuse for why he's tapping phones, right? Well, if I'm understanding these articles correctly (one yesterday I can't find out even outright said this), the guys were caught because of the Asian nation that picked him up. This had nothing to do with tapping phones as far as any of these reports show, and prove that.. well.. these guys can be caught without the need for violating Americans' privacies.

I just don't understand how this excuse is one.
