Neither Rain, Nor Sleet...

I've been blogging slowly these days, a bit burned out in part from the over-the-top commentary on the NSA intercepts by folks who are ignorant of the law (deliberately, or otherwise). Therefore, it was heartening to read about the latest polling data showing 64% of Americans believe that the NSA should be monitoring communications between al-Qaeda and its agents in this country. Remember, we are talking about communications either from overseas or to an overseas location with one of the parties being an al-Qaeda operative! We're not talking about calls to my Zia in Naples. The NY Times op-ed (!!) gets it right that the purpose of this monitoring is not to build a criminal prosecution but is for national security purposes in time of war.
