Gonzales NSA Statement

February 15, 2006

For those who haven’t read it, here’s the Atty. General’s prepared statement regarding the NSA wiretaps. He uses the steel seizure case to support his argument in, I think, a very convincing way. In no way could he be considered to say that the "government can do anything it wants" during wartime. It’s a very focused argument on the legality of the wiretaps in these particular circumstances. As it should be. He also shows how it conforms to the court’s opinions regarding 4th amendment issues. It’s not that long, read the whole thing.
