Unclaimed Territory - by Glenn Greenwald: Administration tells Congress (again) - We won't abide by your "laws"

By a particularly circuitous route, I arrived at this blog, which has a blindingly clear explanation of the sheer lawlessness, by design, of the Bush Administration.

Here's an excerpt:

Thus, Sen. DeWine can pass his cute little bill purporting to require oversight, or Sen. Specter can pass his, or they can do nothing and leave FISA in place. None of that matters, because no matter what Congress or even the President do with regard to the law, the law does not restrict what the President can do in any way. They are telling the Congress to its face that all of the grand debates it is having and the negotiations it is conducting are all irrelevant farces, because no matter what happens, the President retains unlimited power and nothing that Congress does can affect that power in any way.
