    I have no doubt Chimp already abused the wiretapping for political reasons.  He probably has a file on every elected official.  I think you are right, call the piece of excrement's bluff and let the dirt come out.  It's better that it comes out now rather than being a constant source of blackmail.

      When you really ponder it, there is nothing to gain by keeping the communications of terrorists a secret.

      It would be MUCH better to immediately OUT every move they make.

      The argument against doing that is that they will find other ways to communicate if they discover that their current methods aren't safe.

      AND?

      What do they do when they find another avenue, and we expose that too? And again and again and again?

      If we use the immediate exposure method, there IS no excuse for abuse, at all. The open method CAN'T be abused, and it will deter terrorism even better than these ridiculous secret squirrel methods that are just an excuse for abuse of power. Obviously.
