Last night I discuss John Yoo’s latest exercise in professional self-immolation with David Shuster on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann:
Of course, six minutes is not enough time even to enumerate the mistakes contained in Yoo’s Wall Street Journal piece. Consider, for instance, his argument that Franklin Delano Roosevelt proceeded to order national security surveillance without seeking warrants. Fascinating. Might the fact that the requirement of warrants was first imposed by statute in 1978 have something to do with that?
