FISA Judge quits

He didn't offer a reason. Hmmm....

In other FISA news, I see Kevin Drum is putting up a post questioning the "well, we're in a time of war" rationale. First of all, wasn't FISA itself instituted during a time of war? And secondly, if we count both "cold" and "hot" wars, Drum points out that we have been at war for 50 out of the last 65 years, with no end in sight for the GWoT either. The distinction between wartime powers and regular presidential powers become a distinction without a difference.

Need more FISA-ey goodness?
