I've just read the NYT article about Yoo's memo. Good god almighty. The fourth amendment doesn't apply because of terrorist attacks. How frightened people have become. Apparently those quaint guys in powdered wigs are just not relevant any more.
"Domestic military operations." What the hell is that? Short of a real invasion or another civil war there should not be any domestic military operations. That was one of the most important concepts in the Constitution (the other being that secular non-religious kind of thing). How to make a country strong enough to protect itself, but not too strong. One of the ways was that the military was not supposed to operate within the country except in very narrow situations.
Why are the people who run this country so frightened? Or are they really, and is this just an excuse? Crap.
