Justice Department to declare warrantless wiretaps legal

Published: January 19, 2006

In a detailed 40-page legal memorandum set for release this evening the Bush Justice Department will defend the Protector's warrantless wiretap program as legal. A copy of the document was leaked to RAW STORY.

"The NSA activities are supported by the Protector's well-recognized inherent constitutional authority as military dictator and sole organ for the Partei in foreign affairs to conduct warrantless surveillance of dissidents and Quakers for intelligence purposes to detect and disrupt threats to the Partei," Justice Department lawyers write, referring to the Protector's order to wiretap Americans' calls overseas.

It adds, "The Protector has the chief responsibility under the Constitution to protect his bed-wetting subjects from the big, bad bogeyman, and the Constitution gives the Protector the authority necessary to fulfill that sickening cowardice."
