I want a terrorist to his this country as much as the next guy, which is to say, not at all. I also want our country to have something important to preserve - freedom, lawful institutions, law and order, democracy, silly little things like that. For the past 6 years those concepts have given way to doing away with the evildoers. I'm glad to say that freedom and democracy took a large step forward today with Federal Judges opinion striking down the NSA's warrantless wiretapping program as an unconstitutional search, and in general, an unconstitutional seizure of power by the Presidency over the other co-equal branches of government. The article's here. Talking Points Memo's Muckraker has some choice quotes here.
Really good stuff. Freedom, democracy, due process and the American way has reasserted itself.
