Shorter Bob Herbert

From behind the veil of TimesSelect:

A Washington Post-ABC News Poll showed that 51 percent of respondents felt that in the fight against terror, it’s fine for the government to engage in the warrantless wiretapping of telephone calls and e-mail. In other words, it’s fine for the president to break the law.

I find it peculiar that an awful lot of Americans who would be outraged by the burning of the American flag are positively sanguine about the trampling of the Constitution.
