If it suspects you might impede progess in Iraq in some way, or it suspects you might assist someone who might do that. (Or basically if it doesn’t like you.)
What can you do about it? Get mad, write your representatives in Congress. You know, your senators and your representative. Democrat, Republican, or otherwise, this is in direct violation of the constitution. It’ll only take you five minutes, and it makes sure they know you’re listening and aren’t going to take it.

I would like to call your attention to President Bush’s recent unconstitutional Executive Order: http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/07/20070717-3.html

We must stop this ravaging of our constitution and the rights of our citizens. I call upon you, THEIR NAME AND POSITION, to do what is right in this manner and fight for the public.
A concerned citizen,
