    Bush broke the law and continues to break it

    From a Boston Globe editorial piece:

    The issue now is not national security, but presidential power. Congress balanced the two well in 1978, when, recognizing there would be cases when time is of the essence, it said the president could conduct surveillance without a warrant for three days (15 days when there is a congressional declaration of war), but that continued surveillance would require a warrant or court order. Despite repeated efforts, Bush and his minions have failed utterly to show why the fight against terror is crippled by the need to get a warrant. They have also failed to show why taking such action on their own, ignoring specific instructions from Congress, is not a baseless power grab.
    Now, let's see more editorials like this. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
