From the Washington Post:
Twice in the past four years, a top Justice Department lawyer warned the presiding judge of a secret surveillance court that information overheard in President Bush’s eavesdropping program may have been improperly used to obtain wiretap warrants in the court, according to two sources with knowledge of those events.
Great. So, if by some odd chance we had caught a terrorist based on the warrantless searches, the evidence will be ruled as inadmissable in court because it was obtained illegally.
Don’t these people ever watch Law & Order?
