    so-called "legal" secret court decisions? Would they hold up to Constitutional scrutiny at the Supreme Court?

    And then, since treaties are the law of the land just as much as our laws, as described in the US Constitution, then how do you define spying on the UN as "legal" when we have agreements and treaties not to do so?

    At any rate, "legal" doesn't mean "right."  Much of what Enron did was "legal" (not all of it), but practically none of it was right.
