http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/2006/05/fisa-in-one-syllable-words.html

Excerpt:

Q: Hmmm. It is cinch to heed the law then, and still keep us safe. YAAYYY!

A: But the Bush Administration did not heed the law. With no warrants, it spied on some phone lines. It spied on a LOT of phone lines.

Q: Why? Did they say why they broke the law?

A: They gave two "why"s. First, the Man who ran the NSA wire taps said that to go to the FISA court, and do what the law and Constitution say --

Q: The Constitution is good!

A: ... yes. The Man who ran the NSA wire taps said that to go to the FISA court would take too much time, and they would have to fill out a lot of forms!

Q: Ummm ... huh.

A: Yep.

Q: That does not seem like a good "why."

A: Nope.

Q: You would think they would have guys whose job it is to fill out forms.

A: You would.
