Bush Would Let Secret Court Sift Wiretap Process
“This is the president and the Congress coming together to codify the capacity for future presidents to take actions to protect the country,” said Dana Perino, a White House spokeswoman.


The president and the Congress came together in 1978 to sign FISA.

Bush's warrantless wiretap program flips the bird to FISA, to the law of the land.

This is not an issue to be compromised, an issue on which to seek the middle ground. This isn't about bullshit Broder-esque compromise. This is about whether or not the law was violated, and if so, what are the consequences.
