Lawrence Tribe explains it all

In today’s Boston Globe, Lawrence Tribe, the pre-eminent scholar of Constitutional law, writes,
The escalating controversy over the National Security Agency’s data mining program illustrates yet again how the Bush administration's intrusions on personal privacy based on a post-9/11 mantra of “national security” directly threaten one of the enduring sources of that security: the Fourth Amendment “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
You can read the entire article, which ran under the heading, Bush stomps on Fourth Amendment, here.

“… and tell ’em Big Mitch sent ya!”
