Closing the barn door

...after the house, the barn, Aunt Effie, and all the horses have been incinerated in a nuclear attack.

Ex-post facto review of surveillance? For Bush?!? You must be delirious. Given this administration's obvious belief that it's harder to get permission than it is to say, "Fuck you if you don't like it! Impeach me!", only a spineless stooge would fall for a bum deal like this.
