Out with the old...

President Bush has been aggressively defending his authorization for the NSA to monitor persons inside the US without a warrant, which violates the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that covers domestic spying. One excuse that Bush has used is that he chose to bypass FISA because it is out of date. The law was enacted in 1978.

"We're having this discussion in 2006," Bush said. "It's a different world."

What I find rather ironic is the fact that Bush has twice sworn to uphold the Constitution, a document written 200 years ago and one that is, by his own rationalization, ‘outdated’ as well.
