WASHINGTON — A federal intelligence court, in a rare public opinion, is expected to issue a major ruling validating the power of the president and Congress to wiretap international phone calls and intercept e-mail messages without a court order, even when Americans’ private communications may be involved, according to a person with knowledge of the opinion.
Where are the riots? We should be beating down doors in Wa$hington right now.... but we're not. Why? Because we all have IPhones and interwebs and force-fed advertisement driven everything.
