NeoMugwump On Wiretapping

A moderate republican gives his perspective

My own view on this is two fold: First, we do need to know what terrorists might be planning and I can see wiretapping as one way of doing that. However (and this leads to my second point) it has to be done within a legal framework-something the President seems to have forgotten. The President could have turned this into a positive by calling on Congress to stregthen or update the FISA statutes to fit the times. Instead, he used the old tactic of fear.

Definitely read the rest.
