BUSH & GEN HAYDENS NSA WIRETAPS ARE SUPREME COURT ILLEGAL

BUSH & HAYDEN's WIRETAPS ARE SUPREME COURT ILLEGAL

Back in 1972, the Supreme Court took on a case (where President Nixon ordered wiretaps on individuals suspected of plotting to bomb a CIA building) and ruled that the President's power under the Constitution to defend the country from attacks does not give the executive the power to unilaterally order wiretaps. (US v. US District Court, 407 U.S. 29)
