  •  So then, is it true that (none)
    Bush is the first President since 1978 to question the constitutionality of FISA?  Regardless, the proper procedure is NOT to simply bypass FISA SECRETLY FOR THREE FUCKING YEARS!

    He's saying he can spy on Americans without warrant, because the FISA statute is uncontitutional.  Okay, so then what if the next thing he does is he decides to imprison Americans secretly, and then two years later, gets caught, and tells us that the law against THAT was fucking unconstitutional.

    See where I'm going here?

        new story

        In search of a terrorist nuclear bomb, the federal government since 9/11 has run a far-reaching, top secret program to monitor radiation levels at over a hundred Muslim sites in the Washington, D.C., area, including mosques, homes, businesses, and warehouses, plus similar sites in at least five other cities, U.S. News has learned. In numerous cases, the monitoring required investigators to go on to the property under surveillance, although no search warrants or court orders were ever obtained, according to those with knowledge of the program. Some participants were threatened with loss of their jobs when they questioned the legality of the operation, according to these accounts.
