I still have not heard anyone even faintly suggest that one reason this program was carried out in as much secrecy as possible is that the White House knows full well that we have traitor's on the security council that will leak classified information - the name Rock-er-feller comes to mind, for one.

This from the NYT? I don't think so. They are probably reprinting a post from FreeRepublic.

Even if the government wanted to spy on every American, there are WAY too many phone calls, emails, etc. for the NSA to possibly monitor them all.
And even if the government obtains evidence against Americans using illegal methods, under US law that evidence is inadmissable in a court of law. Any evidence gathered subsequently is likewise inadmissable ("fruit of the poisoned tree.")
So, from a legal standpoint, these alleged "illegal" wiretaps and comm intercepts can only be used to prevent terror attacks- not to put anyone in jail.
You sure won't hear this from the MSM!

Interestingly enough, under British law if evidence is obtained illegally it is still admissable. The jury is advised of how the evidence was obtained, but is allowed to judge the evidence on it's merits. I wonder how many IRA or UDF terrorists were jailed under this provision?

"The N.S.A. is our most important intelligence agency. Typically, about 60 percent of the president's daily brief comes from its intercepts."

Statement obviously planted by a CIA flack to draw suspicion away from some concurrent conjuring;-)
