On the Precedent of Warrantless Searches

Following the election of Lieberman and Clinton in 2008 to the presidency and vice presidency respectfully, and the ensuing liberalization of abortion law, a new spat of abortion doctor assassinations by ultra conservative Christians followed.

In the name of security, and citing his predecor, Lieberman authorized the FBI to conduct warrantless wiretaps and searches of thousands of evangelical organizations and churches, the overwhelming majority of whom unequivocally stood against the conduct of a very few on the far right who had committed these atrocities.

Think about it Bush lovers. What kind of precedent is your beloved president setting, and by whom and for what will the precident be used?

Right on David, makes for an interesting definition of terrorism doesn't it? Thought provoking to say the least.
