In my ongoing effort to find common ground. I say, KICK THEIR DERRIER!!!

It is even more disturbing to learn that, while Mr. Hashemi sailed through Yale’s admissions process, the school turned down the opportunity to enroll women who really did escape the wreckage of Afghanistan.

Brian, did you see my comment 16 to the Bush, brawling post, below? I believe the 2 cited instances were of democrats saying it was wrong to "spy" on people, impliedly including terrorists, in America and in both instances, no reference was made to seeking warrants.

I think you’re obsessed with the idea that the Bush administration is lying about that and I am obsessed with trying to prove they aren’t.

I did a quick check of google for you Brian, here’s what I found:

But we didn’t mean he could wiretap people in the United States, says Tom Daschle, then the Senate minority leader.

"If the president wanted to expand the authority he already has to wiretap anyone who might be communicating with terrorists then he should have come to the Congress to get that authority," [Reid said in a statement]. That would be Senate Minority Leader, Harry Reid. warrants.

I appreciate the effort, but at the risk of disrupting our fragile dètente, I don’t see that either of these statements are an injunction not to wiretap terrorists.

The first, is simply someone disputing what the declaration of war meant. Not that terrorists should not be wiretapped. Certainly what you are suggesting, qualifies as a "radical interpretation of the text".

The second, is fairly typical of what they have been saying all along, i.e. that it should occur, but within the law.

I don’t know what to tell you man, neither of these strike me as remotely convincing that democrats do not want terrorists to be wiretapped:-(

Maybe it’s me.
