Still More Informed Analysis of The NSA "Spying" on Americans

John Schmidt served under President Clinton from 1994 to 1997 as the associate attorney general of the United States, and is now a partner in a major Chicago law firm. In today's Chicago Tribune Mr. Schmidt begins his op-ed piece very simply:

President Bush's post- Sept. 11, 2001, authorization to the National
Security Agency to carry out electronic surveillance into private phone calls
and e-mails is consistent with court decisions and with the positions of the
Justice Department under prior presidents.

Read the whole thing. I wonder how much attention this will get in the rest of the mainstream news media. I'm not optimistic.
