On Schieffer's show, GOP Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama says the domestic spying is legal under the AUMF. This is the Jeff Sessions of the Judiciary Committee.
Yeah, these NSA hearings are going to get to the bottom of things.
Administration Rah Rah David Brooks of the NYT says let's just pass a law that makes unwarranted spying on Americans legal. Which I fear is exactly what will happen. Never mind that any such law will still violate the Fourth Amendment and other parts of the Constitution.
Woe is us.
