Re: Courts will eventually make procedures clear

the United States is no longer a nation of laws and I don't expect this type of behaviour to slow down or lessen and I certainly don't expect the USSC to rule against it; I'll actually be surprised if a case even reaches the USSC.

As for these local agencies, they are just taking their cue from the top, "the most transparent administration ever" TM

Don't know what the political comment was for,both sides are in this boat no one party is to blame they both suck.

As scary as this is which won't change unless god himself came down and put the kibosh on this program and let the courts in on approval process.

Does anyone really think law enforcement will give up this new tool they get use without throwing every resource they have to protect it ?

Anyways the program or whatever you want to call it that is going on right now is the scariest thing I have ever read that we know about publicly is this. »www.nytimes.com/2012/03/23/nyreg···ide.html

Whoops almost forgot this new program which I am sure has the 3 letter agency's drooling all over this.

oh, I agree with you on both parties suck; the reference to the "most transparent administration ever" is sarcasm; Obama said during campaigning or shortly after being elected that his administration "would be the most transparent ever".

However, the excuse they use to prevent lawsuits on illegal wiretapping is to invoke the state secrets privilege (the "we can't tell you because the terrists would win" defense).

that, plus aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers when something is revealed that is embarrassing, but completely ignoring leakers of information the admin wants to get out.

Obama is worse than Bush when it comes to secrets and lack of transparency.

The difference is more about knowing the secrets exist. This country spent many years knowing something other than what was the reality of a lot of situations. Today there is a lot that we actually know is going on but we don't know the details of it due to lawyers.

There's probably more power in the DOJ right now than is actually in the whitehouse when ti comes to everyday life things for the population. too many lawyers in the ranks of politicians which means too many politicians with practicing lawyers as allies which means it's easy to pass or maintain laws that keep lawyers in business.

If I didn't know better, I'd think that Joe Stalin is still alive and well and running the show in Washington. America is gone... it's Amerika now.
