Reagan and AEI lawyer Bruce Fein opines in today's Washington Times.
President Bush presents a clear and present danger to the rule of law. He cannot be trusted to conduct the war against global terrorism with a decent respect for civil liberties and checks against executive abuses.

Many people are asking why the regular route wasn't used.

As someone working in the field, you're probably not surprised that I find public surveillance a very good thing.

I like this recommendation, of creating cabinet level posts entirely dedicated to oversight of any surveillance program.

Similarly, any program should have a mandated sunset clause, so that it needs to justify its existence often.
