the ABA notifies Bush that he's a lawbreaker

I think if anybody knows what's legal and what's not it is the ABA. From, here are some exerpts from a letter that they wrote to the criminal-in-chief:
RESOLVED, that the American Bar Association calls upon the President to abide by the limitations which the Constitution imposes on a president under our system of checks and balances and respect the essential roles of the Congress and the judicial branch in ensuring that our national security is protected in a manner consistent with constitutional guarantees

FURTHER RESOLVED, that the American Bar Association opposes any future electronic surveillance inside the United States by any U.S. government agency for foreign intelligence purposes that does not comply with the provisions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, 50 U.S.C. §§ 1801 et seq. (FISA), and urges the President, if he believes that FISA is inadequate to safeguard national security, to seek appropriate amendments or new legislation rather than acting without explicit statutory authorization

I wonder if anybody read this letter to Bush? Maybe they could tape it to the inside of his copy of my pet goat.

Call your Senator, tell them you agree with the ABA and you support Fiengold's censure motion.
