Odd.. After reading this statement, I didn't know who you were talking about, terrorists, or the people in charge of our government....
I FOR ONE WOULD RATHER HAVE A TEMPORARY BENDING OF THE RULES BY THE ONES WE ALREADY PUT IN CHARGE (remember that you and I voted to put all these people in, no matter what party) THAN HAVE THE WHOLE RULEBOOK DESTROYED BY OUR ENEMIES.
Please, I'd rather they follow the rules that are in place already and agreed to be just by all three sects of our government. They have the ability to quickly wiretap, they have the ability to trace calls, view phone records, etc. What they don't want to do is go through the proper channels to get the authorization to do so.
And speak for yourself about the "voted him in". The man is not competent enough to run a deep fryer at McDonalds let alone run a country.
