  •  Chicago Tribune (4.00)
    The reliably conservative Chicago Tribune had an editorial this morning that was critical of the President.

    It ends like this:

    In an emergency, no one would deny the president the right to move swiftly and forcefully to save American lives. But FISA has emergency provisions allowing the government to order such wiretaps first and seek permission later--which was not done here.

    If Bush thinks FISA is inadequate to the demands of this new war, he should go to Congress and the country and make the case for changing it. So far, the only case the administration has made is that it thinks it can scorn the law.
