Shudder. Are we really going to permit warrantless wiretaps? The immunity issue for the telecoms is one thing. They might have violated the law (well they did) but they also might have been forced into it by an out of control adminitrative branch of government. Of course Congress has no interest is really investigating.

This is a worth it read, a post from the HuffingtonPost.

If passed, and given the overblown political rhetoric, could a republican administration define the democratic party as a threat to the national security (or vice versa?) How about Justice Anthony Kennedy? Given Scalia's comments and Gingrich's comments regarding the ruling on GITMO, could a judge who disagrees with the current admin be surveilled?

Conservatives decry the nanny state? How about a police state?
