Pots and Kettles....

Sen. Clinton Blasts Bush on Eavesdropping
By RON FOURNIER, AP Political Writer

Clinton, a potential 2008 presidential candidate, told reporters she did not yet know whether the administration's warrantless eavesdropping broke any laws. But the senator said she did not buy the White House's main justification for the tactic.


"Their argument that it's rooted in the Constitution inherently is kind of strange because we have FISA and FISA operated very effectively and it wasn't that hard to get their permission," she said.

I have only three comments on this for Ms. Clinton...

Waco - serious abuse of power

Echelon - eavesdropping without FISA

... and the missing data in the Barrett Report - more serious abuse of power
