Wiretaps without Warrants

This great news from Reuters: Judge rules secret wiretaps violate rights.
A judge ordered the Bush administration on Thursday to stop a domestic wiretap program it says protects Americans from terrorism but which the judge said violated their civil rights.

This has turned out to be a really great day. I expect much obfuscation from the Bush Administration about the difference between seeking a warrant and not seeking a warrant for wiretaps.

Until someone serves time, it seems law doesn't matter.

renegade eye,

I don't see the Bush Administration following a court order. That means Congress will have to prosecute via impeachment proceedings. Not likey, but hope springs eternal.
