Ted Kennedy alleges in a Boston Globe op—ed that Bush is not listening to the Constitution with regard to the NSA surveillance. These sorts of wiretaps were signed into law by Jimmy Carter, President Clinton's Assistant Attorney General wrote an op—ed that pointed out the legality of them; congressional leaders were informed of them; leading legal scholars have okayed them as witin the law.
Yet the Senator from Massachusettes, who cheated in college and left the scene of an accident while his passenger died, finds something un—Constititonal about George Bush's conduct. He pontificates that Bush is not following the law of the land! How about leaving the scene of an accident and not reporting it for hours? And how did Kennedy escape a manslaughter convicton?
Regarding the legality of these wiretaps, maybe Senator Kennedy should go back to school and not substitute someone else's work as his own.
