    Just what was the point of monitoring radiation levels?  Did they honestly believe that all those sites actually had radioactive materials stored there?  If so, warrants should have been no problem.  

    Or was 'monitoring radiation levels' the excuse they needed to get themselves on premises so they could snoop around and fish for something else on which to base a warrant?  Otherwise, known as a fishing expedition and one for which they would not have received a warrant because there was no reasonable basis of suspicion.

    Just how stupid is this administration?  Did they think they would never get caught?  

    I absolutely refuse to give up my civil rights and freedoms as an American.  And they do not have the right to abuse them while doing their legitimate function of protecting this country.

    •  BINGO.... (none)
      You got it exactly right.  You win the washer/dryer and the portable "radiation monitoring device."


    •  Yeah ... (none)
      Monitoring for radiation strikes me as legitimate, but they once again seem to have expanded a limited legitimate idea into an excuse for sweeping intrusion of privacy.  A common pattern for this administration.
    •  Yes, their primary function (none)
      the one they all SWEAR to on a BIBLE (hear that O'Reilly?), is to protect and defend the Constitution of The United States of America.

      I, for one, would prefer that George, Dick and Abu G. be reading our Constitution, and abiding by it, rather than spying on American citizens without a warrant.
