deceived -- entrapment by belief, disclosure would decree:
So much for warrantless surveillance! Now we need to see the craven defenders of this blatantly unconstitutional program lambaste Bush for betraying national security. I'm nominating Gabriel Schoenfeld, Andy McCarthy, Fred Barnes, and Heather MacDonald.

UPDATE: K-Lo posts the letter from Gonzales to Leahy and Specter. Note that there isn't even the barest patina of effort to explain why Bush has done this -- that is, why Bush abandoned what he kept calling, throughout 2006, a vital tool for tracking down terrorists that couldn't possibly be subject to the inflexibilities of FISA. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: total capitulation. God save the Republic. Now we just need some habeas corpus.

Nice Fugazi reference. I'm pretty sure, though, that it's "entrapment through belief."

Hold your horses on this one. When Heather Wilson is still pitching a fit (See http://www.warandpiece.com/), there's more to come. See, for example, this: http://blog.wired.com/27bstroke6/2007/01/nsa_warrantless.html

You didn't really think Bush/Cheney/Addington/Gonzales got rolled this easily, now did you?
