I don’t think it’s quite appropriate for people like me to profess to know whether the wiretapping procedures the preznit is defending are legal or not. Although they sound illegal, there are always some nuances that keep me from being able to judge. Sure, I’m inclined against the taps because of who’s doing them, but that isn’t enough.

Still, this article from the NYTimes seems to spell things out pretty well. We know that Gonzales is a lackey for Bush, who likes his AttyGens close, loyal, and fascist. Here he’s saying that the law granting Bush war powers essentially trumps far more specific laws in place previously. So is anything verboten given these war powers? Perhaps, hitting kittens with hammers?
