story I'm gonna flip this on its head. Goss, Negroponte et al are incredibly upset that their illegal spying operation was leaked, thus degrading the quality of intelligence they're collecting. I think it was highly irresponsible of them to put our intelligence gathering capabilities at risk by not applying for FISA warrants. Had they simply followed the law as written, the story never would have blown up their faces, since there would have been no scandal over the legality of the program. George Bush should be ashamed that he put the nation at risk and undermined our efforts to collect legally viable intelligence, that may now be unusable in court because of his rampant corner-cutting. We should all contact our representatives and demand that Bush and the Republicans take the safety of our nation seriously, that they stop endangering our intelligence operations by performing acts so illegal that members of their own team feel the need to speak out in public about these programs.
