What did Bush do? Well ... let's review

The intelligence community was tracking him by cell phone emanations - until the New York Times posted what we were doing, and how.

Then, they were tracking the US numbers called by known Al Qaeda agents overseas - until those of your ilk started clanging your empty pots about "warrantless wiretaps" - which, BTW, never happened.
