    is that given his approval is in the toilet, even on fighting terror, there's no way that Americans will believe that this is all about protecting America. Okay, so I said "no way Americans will believe". That's a bit strong, since somewhere around half of us (not Kos US of course) think that Saddam did 9/11. A fella can dream can't he.

      if we had been questioning it louder and more clearly from the start. It had almost become a non-issue before Feingold brought up Censure because of it.

      They say 52% of Americans are OK with warrantless wiretapping on terrorists. Well duh, people don't worry about the privacy rights of people who want to kill Americans (as they phrase it). How the hell do we know who they are spying on? Who knows the names? Who is watching that, who has THAT oversight? How do they define terrorists? How many are there talking to Americans and why don't they arrest them?

      Why can't they get a warrant within 72 hours if this is on the up and up?

      If Americans don't mind it's because we aren't pointing out the obvious.

      They have this wrapped in layers of secrecy. Who trusts them with that?

      Our party has not spoken up enough on this. The republicans haven't either, this should not be a partisan issue.
