Q: Hmmm. It is cinch to heed the law then, and still keep us safe. YAAYYY!
A: But the Bush Administration did not heed the law. With no warrants, it spied on some phone lines. It spied on a LOT of phone lines.
Q: Why? Did they say why they broke the law?
A: They gave two “why”s. First, the Man who ran the NSA wire taps said that to go to the FISA court, and do what the law and Constitution say —
Q: The Constitution is good!
A: … yes. The Man who ran the NSA wire taps said that to go to the FISA court would take too much time, and they would have to fill out a lot of forms!
Q: Ummm … huh.
Q: That does not seem like a good “why.”
Q: You would think they would have guys whose job it is to fill out forms.
A: You would.

Hayden is a bulletheaded fuckface. lol
Fucking FISA practically gives away warrants. Hell, y’all can tap or search some suckah and apply for a warrant three days later! Although I suspect FISA might frown on bugging Howard Dean, unless they found his secret phone line to Osama Ben Laden. ;P
