James, what we consider "illegal" is not in the eyes of those in power. remember that the whole showdown between Gen. Hayden and HPSCI Roark was over the "reasonableness" standard regarding privacy.

the stance changed to "warrantless surveillance is *reasonable* in the context of anti-terror."

obviously we don't agree, but to claim this authorization was some watershed malfeasance is misguided.

we're still waiting on the supreme court to weigh in on this "reasonableness"...

best regards,
