there's necessary connection between violating the law and the program

and being any safer

and in fact if you look at the history of intelligence failures leading up to nine

eleven then you look at the history of major intelligence failures

leading as even the president now acknowledges to

the war in iraq

to say that we should just

turn it over to this secret national security agency as to how best to

conduct surveillance of americans to find the next terrorist

makes no sense at all the point of

judicial oversight the point of congressional oversight and then the

point even of public debate is to ensure

that we have the most effective

means possible there is this

perennial uh...

implication and assumption by this administration

that somehow by violating the fourth amendment we'll automatically be safer

when the two things aren't necessarily connected at all
