    Obama or the FISA court and Chief Justice Roberts, who appoints unilaterally the members of the FISA Court? Neither.

    It's the government intelligence apparatus—NSA, FBI, CIA and other associated spooks. FISA and Roberts are rubber stamps and Obama is a captive of the spooks.

    Now that the nation knows of their malfeasance, do we acquiesce in it or fight it. As Americans we have no choice but to fight it. Otherwise we lose what makes us unique. We become no better than China, Russia or any other authoritarian country to whom a constitution is but a scrap of paper at best and a nuisance at worst.
