not a true believer in the rightness of everything the Bush Administration does. Still, I'm simply unable to get my dudgeon up over this issue. I keep coming back to the question:

And the answer I keep coming up with is: Sure.
To which I'd like to add the the observation that it's nonsensical to refer to anti-terror wire-tapping as "spying on Americans," when the targets of the investigation are Muslim immigrants in America.
