Answer This, Alberto!

How is FISA "not fast enough" if you can start a wiretap immediately, without waiting, as long as you get a court order within 72 hours? Let's keep asking this question until we get a straight answer. Again: FISA provides LEAs the authority to start wiretaps without a warrant, as long as they get a warrant within 72 hours. How is instantaneous not fast enough?


  • Instantaneous is not fast enough when speed is not the issue--but power is. They're hiding behind the issue of speed; what they *want* is flat-out dictatorial power, the *personal* power for the president to point his finger and name someone to be wiretapped, arrested, held, whatever. To make up the law as he goes along. To *be* the law, which will mean whatever he says it means.

  • (Fj) - The AG is the same guy who said torture and inhumane treatment of people held without proven cause (we think they might be bad)is o.k., right? What's a little wiretapping here and there? EVERYONE (like millions)should send e-mails to someone in Iraq and ask about the weather. That'll give GW something to read during his two-month vacations.
