    truth.

    Okay, well that just tells me that we are doing something illegal if we can't tell Congress about it.

    Reminds me of the scene from Calvin & Hobbes in which
    (as they perch on the garage roof) Hobbes says, "Did you ask your Mother if you could jump off the roof?" And Calvin's answer is a gleeful: "Questions I already know the answers to, I don't need to ask!"

    Um, yeah.

    Q: "Congress can we secret spies look at anything we ever wanted to?"
    A: "It's better to ask forgiveness than permission."

    More plausible deniability, YAY!!!!

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
