Intelligence Court Rules Wiretapping Power Legal

"The decision marks the first time since the disclosure of we decided to disclose the National Security Agency’s warrantless eavesdropping program three years ago that an appellate court has addressed the constitutionality of the federal government’s wiretapping powers. In validating the government’s wide authority to collect foreign intelligence, it may offer legal credence to the Bush administration’s repeated assertions that the president has the power to act without specific court approval in ordering national security eavesdropping that may involve Americans. that we, the New York Times, are major assholes."

Fixed that for ya there Pinch. You dick.
