How many right-wingers does it take to write an article justifying warrantless wiretapping? Apparently, it takes 4. Pete Sessions, Jack Kingston (R-GA) Darrell Issa (R-CA), and Chris Cannon (R-UT) co-authored this piece for Human Events Online calling warrants "a waste of valuable time."
For those who are not familiar with Human Events Online, that's the group who compiled a list of the "Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries," which included such "dangerous" books as The Feminine Mystique, by Betty Friedan and The Kinsey Report, by Alfred Kinsey. (Right-wing extremists like Pete Sessions are scared to death of anything that goes on "down there.") Included on the honorable mention list is Silent Spring, by Rachel Carson, and Unsafe at Any Speed, by Ralph Nader.
So when you're wading through this group's argument defending warrantless wiretapping, consider the source.
