    and the rest of the people who "don't see a difference." Clinton/Carter acted PURSUANT to FISA.  This means they merely reiterated what FISA already allowed: namely, warrantless searches against foreign officials under very strict restrictions and a system of checks & balance.

    Bush's order is CONTRARY to FISA. He did not invoke FISA, as Clinton and Carter did. He invoked some nebulous-ass "inherent authority" crap and the Sept. 14, 2001 resolution. Both excuses have been thoroughly debunked on this site.

    So, your turn. Respond with your best factual argument.

      Thank you for doin what ever it was you did to the thread, it was getting to thin to make much sense of of keep track of. :)

      I also want to reinterate to you the genuineness of the questions I am asking. Alot of folks have screamed 'Troll!' since I got the confidence to post here. I've seen how alot of contrary views have been treated by others that post here. But I have taken a different approach in being very forthright in what I'm asking and why. I hope everyone understands this (though not all will) and has the tolerance for it.  :)
