This is an excellent way to tell the administration that domestic wiretapping of the kind the Bush administration has been involved in is not supported.
Are we about to get a class of lawyers with a conscience?
From the CNN article:
"Had this program been in effect prior to 9/11, it is my professional judgment that we would have detected some of the 9/11 al Qaeda operatives in the United States, and we would have identified them as such," said Hayden, who now is principal deputy director of national intelligence.
As I recall, several of the 9/11 operatives were identified prior to the events of that day. The warnings were ignored. Wiretapping without a court order won’t fix problems of people ignoring the data they already have.
