Debunking Domestic Spying Myths

I've heard most of the myths, and Media Matters for America debunks them.

The myths are:
  1. No time to get warrants
  2. Congress was informed and approved
  3. FISA permits warrantless searches
  4. Clinton/Carter authorized warrantless searches
  5. Only Dems care about domestic spying
  6. Debate between civil liberties/national security
  7. Leak about bin Laden satellite phone
  8. Clinton asserted "the same authority" as Bush
  9. Clinton bypassed FISA for Aldrich Ames
  10. Clinton conducted domestic spying: Echelon
  11. Moussaoui proved FISA hinders anti-terrorism efforts
  12. 2002 FISA court ruling says Bush acted legally
