RE: Bush can wiretap in time of war
Who said we don't want wiretaps? What we want are WARRANTS to know who is being wiretapped. If you ask the question that way, the polls go in opposite directions. As has been repeatedly pointed out here, the President has 72 hours to get a warrant. Sure sounds like "activated terror cells" are covered in there. So the question arises, why would he want to do so without warrants? He is not prevented from wiretapping, and he can act immediately. So the real question is: why does he not want to go before a court? Given their history of lying, prefabicration, disinformation, and military murder, it is obvious - he is wiretapping his political enemies, because he is a Nazi fuck.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
