The Mos Eisley Chronicles-Part III

The moonbats at Daily Kos linked to this piece from The Nation on Feingold's censure motion. I wonder when the moonbats, the antique media, and the like will have a serious discussion of the legal precedent for warrantless surveillance in the area of foreign intelligence. Probably never. But I would like at least one Lefty to provide a serious analysis of the FISA Court of Review's published opinion In re Sealed Case in which it takes for granted the President's power to conduct such surveillance and then explain how such action is "illegal".

As far as I know, for the blogtopia of moonbats, Glenn Greenwald has some of the most thoughtful discussion on the NSA controversy. A collection of his arguements is here:

I didn't go through to see if it deals with Sealed Case specifically and I am not qualified to evaluate the quality of his legal arguments. He does seem to be at the center of the discussions though.
