SHIT I LEARNED TODAY
mostly from the Dallas Morning News...
"There were many people, many lawyers within the administration who advised the president tht he had inherent authority as commander in chief under the Constitution to engage in this kind of signals intelligence of our enemy....Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, discussing the National Security Agency's secret wiretaps."
notice he did't mention what he thought?
"You're either secretly eavesdropping on people and violating the law,or you're going through the court and doing it properly.This (the NSA) is an extremely dangerous agency that has to be watched very closely so that it doesn't turn into an Orwellian 1984."..jamesBamford, author of Body Secrets:Anatomy of the Ultra-Secret Nation Security Agency.
