boxer, reid, kennedy and byrd have been on their high horses the last couple of days since the NYT reported a story from a leak inside the administration that suggested that the President had ordered wire taps on conversations originating from within US borders with regards to those deemed to be working in cahoots with known terrorist organizations without a warrant from a US judge…
now, were these "noble" senators on their high horse to try and find the individual responsible for the leaking of an organization that up until now for all intensive purposes didn't exist?
no, these "fine upstanding keepers of the law" were on their high horse wanting the President impeached for his reprehensible acts of "thuggery" and his violation of FISA (the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act)…
maybe it is just me, but wouldn't this ruling pretty much make it legal for the President to perform these wire taps without the warrant from a court?
November 2002 decision of the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, in Sealed Case No. 02-001, where the court said:
"The Truong court [United States v. Truong Dinh Hung, 4th Cir. 1980], as did all the other courts to have decided the issue, held that the President did have inherent authority to conduct warrantless searches to obtain foreign intelligence information. *** We take for granted that the President does have that authority and, assuming that is so, FISA could not encroach on the President's constitutional power."
hmmm, maybe those "fine lawmakers" don't know the law….oh wait, that's right, they are all suffering from BBS (Bush Butchering Syndrome)….
we will forgive you this time….now just find the individual who committed treason by leaking this information to the "reputable" institution that is the NYT…
