  •  Is it not correct that (none)
    the AUMF authorized Mr. Bush to go after those involved in the 9/11 attacks, and those aiding and harboring the same? And that it authorized Mr. Bush to go after ONLY those persons, not ALL terrorists in the world?
    •  That is correct (none)

      The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

      •  So then this (none)
        statement:

        Relying largely on those constitutional powers, Congress passed a resolution just days after the September 11 attacks granting the president the authority to wage a global war on terrorism, and...--Risen

        is totally bogus, unless the GWoT is understood to mean the GWo(9/11)T.

        •  A lot of bogus in there (none)

          The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

        •  For example (4.00)
          In the years before 9/11, the NSA apparently recognized that the remarkable growth in transit traffic was becoming a major issue that had never been addressed by FISA or the other 1970s-era rules and regulations governing the U.S. intelligence community.

          In fact, the law covers it remarkably well in its definition of "US Persons", "Surveillance" and "Communications."

          Frankly, there is no need that I can see to amend FISA.

          The SCOTUS is extraordinary.
