The Question

In the wake of the Judge Taylor decision on NSA domestic spying, many would agree decision has merit although the opinion is written pretty poorly.

The question that still is not being asked is why is 72 hours retroactive for a warrant is not good enough?

Through FISA Congress practically pretzled itself bending over backwards to insure the executive branch had the tools to address security. It includes a provision that would actually allow warrants to be obtained after searches had been conducted.

Not once has the Bush admistrations answered why this is not good enough. The silence leads only to the conclusion that searches are being conducted where warrants would not be granted.

Exactly the types of searches the founders guarded against with a little thing called the Fourth Amendment.
