International Wiretaps and the Law

I haven't written about the NSA international wiretaps and the fuss being made in the press. Not because I don't have an opinion, but because I am not a lawyer and the fuss seems to be about the law.

As several folk's have said, finding out who al-Qaeda is calling in this country and what they are up to is a good idea - and is necessary to keeping us safe from future attacks.

John Hinderaker at Power Line is a lawyer, and he has a very understandable review of the relevant case law in Power Line: Spies and Lying Editorialists. He also takes apart a NY Times editorial on subject, which is always fun.
