Answer to Atrios' question - 2

It seems I can do a worthy imitation of a wingnut. 'fore going further, see this and then this.

Here is another weak argument, no doubt satisfying to some, to answer Atrios:

Because the President's run-around FISA has been leaked, it is likely that (enemy of America) political forces at home, such as a Senate inquiry, might force him to stop it. Now the Admin. will have to file papers with FISC within 72 hours of starting a wiretap, and the Court might reject 0.01% of these! Therein lies the breach to national security.
