Bitter Arrogance  "The president acted in clear contravention of a criminal law enacted by Congress, and a Supreme Court precedent, both directly on point."

It's easy to criticize and accuse when our lives and loved ones have not been destroyed by the acts of terrorists we cannot either locate or identify.

If the President is not allowed some latitude in the search for these people, what do you suggest as an alternative, asking them to please identify themselves?

Do what you need to do, I understand but you can go back within 72 hours and get the legal documentation to support what you did. Not even this is a consideration here.

There is a law. It is on the books. If the president feels the law is insufficient, he needs to try to change the law. Period. Selah. Otherwise, he is breaking the law. Read the 2nd article of impeachment against King Richard Nixon (aka Nixon Agonistes). He would have been impeached for wiretapping and other illegal acts against U.S. citizens' privacy.
Remember, it's not spying per se that's an issue here...it's illegally spying on U.S. citizens that the president directed the National Security Agency to do.
Too, I like how you hide behind anonymity. I allow that here...but in the Bush Empire, perhaps that's not so allowable?
Thank about it...
