    in the United States you mean.

    The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

    •  Right (none)
      Eavesdropping on communications involving only persons outside of the US doesn't constitute "electronic surveillance" in the FISA.

      I've come to agree that Kerr is very subtlely spinning this topic.  He's not willing to buy into the wacky John Yoo legal justifications, but his emphasis is always designed to minimize the seriousness of the situation.  It's very disappointing.  If most of the program were about surveillance of parties not in the US, then why wouldn't Bush say so, since every law professor in the country would agree that that is legal.

      •  hard to say (none)
        that YOUR GUY is deliberately subverting the Constitution.

        I can't say that is so strange. We are all human after all.

        Sunstein is the guy who makes no sense.

        The SCOTUS is extraordinary.
