But why he is so concerned vis a vis the Geneva Conventions eludes me in light of his other opinions regarding Executive Powers.
This gentleman's defense of the administration's terrorist surveillance program reads in part;
"And in my view, FISA constituted a usurpation of presidential power--a violation of the Constitution and their oath of office by those who voted to make it law in 1978. It was hardly the most egregious such usurpation in the post-Vietnam period, and its harmful consequences have not rivaled those of the War Powers Resolution, for example, in my view. But it has, I believe, done identifiable harm."
Were Mr. Turner to have his way, there would be neither Congressional nor Judicial oversight of any intelligence gathering operations or assets.
