What’s that tappin’?

Bush’s indignation over any sort of impropriety regarding the NSA tapping was typical. Further examination of what is necessary for FISA to grant a warrant undermines his argument.

If it is not frequent that government applications are overruled by FISA and a warrant can be sought up to 72 hours after a tap has been made, what is left of Bush’s argument? Only that it is his perogative, and, baby, that ain’t enough.

What is this tapping for?
