It might also be said that The People cuold simply petition 'their' governement about this situation, with the threat that our checks might be withheld until we get a reasonable response on this issue.
Unfortunately, a group called WE THE PEOPLE just tried that - all the way to the USSC, and guess what the court said - sorry no case here, your Governement may or may not owe you a response about this issue, but its not a case we are going to rule on - so start getting your pens and check books out as usual.”

“That is different than illegal violating the Geneva Convention and wire-tapping citizens. It only takes 2 days to get the authorization. There needs to be a record of who is being wire tap and why. Or do you love Cheney/Bush J. Edgar Hoover's/McCarthyism way of criminal investigation?”

“Yes, indeed. I'd strongly recommend G. Greenwald's posts regarding the conduct of Obama's DOD--thus far it has been exemplary and unparalleled.
Why has no one else picked up on the DOD's improper use of the state's secret privilege to hinder justice?”

“Yeah, this is a pretty disturbing and despicable road Obama is treading on the subject of Executive power.”
