Legality of NSA Electronic Surveillance Program

John Hinderaker at Powerline discusses the NSA matter today including this point:

If our soldiers or intelligence agencies discover a terrorist in Afghanistan, Iraq or elsewhere, the President or his designees can order an air strike or other attack to kill him. It would be very odd if the President has the authority to kill a terrorist, but not to intercept his telephone calls or search his cave.

John Hinderaker goes on to lay out the most complete look at this controversial issue than anyone yet in the MSM.

Instapundit posted today a Department of Justice release on the NSA matter provided by the Corner.

Will Franklin looks at the insanity of it all.
