21. I think they are spooked...
Trent Lott said "disaster could be on our doorstep" if lawmakers failed to act on Protect America Act two weeks ago.
Presumably there were ongoing NSC wiretapping / datamining operations picking up traffic related to financial market volatility.
ABC/Disney News, the White House, and DHS had spent most of the summer talking about "gut feelings" and imminent attacks.
Then 3 things happened:
1) The house of a former DOJ lawyer, TT, involved in wiretapping operations was searched by the FBI;
2) The stock market tanked;
3) Karl Rove announced his resignation.
Why would "disaster could be on our doorstep" if US intelligence agencies are required to obtain warrants from FISA to do their spying?
The warrants are allowed to be filed after the fact, so the timeliness argument is bull.
Why is this administration so frighted of oversight? And frightened they are...

Keep digging...There is a light there somewhere...
And ps
Abraxas scares the hell outta me...
