I know, I didn't mention FISA yesterday

But that doesn't mean it went away.

The ACLU clues us in on what the FBI does when FISA says "no." They issue National Security Letters to get what they want anyway.

Remember, FISA almost never rejects government requests for warrants. I don't even mean one in a hundred; more like one in thousands. But they said no to the FBI. And the FBI used a different route to get what it wanted.

So, what makes you think that you have any Fourth Amendment rights? Under Bush's rule, you have none.

Congress needs to get its collective ass in gear and remedy this. Now.

In other news, you can check out the Nacchio case and what an appeals court had to say. It's related to FISA issues.
