6. I saw an episode like that on NCIS quite a while ago...
Although they present that stuff as maximizing use of authority granted to the executive branch for a good cause, they don't mind presenting it as a reach and pushing the envelope and showing how it *could* be abused. I've no idea if the writer had a point here or was just using real life as a basis for a what-if for dramatic purposes.

I think the situation I saw was threatening to send a drug smuggler to Gitmo as an enemy combattant and it had nothing to do with tapping phone lines.
