For your reading pleasure

More on the spy game:

The NYT explains that the NSA may have accidentally listened in on domestic calls, where both parties were on American soil.

A FISA court judge resigns in protest.

The Washington Times (!) thinks this spying thing is a really bad thing. Money quote:
President Bush presents a clear and present danger to the rule of law. He cannot be trusted to conduct the war against global terrorism with a decent respect for civil liberties and checks against executive abuses. Congress should swiftly enact a code that would require Mr. Bush to obtain legislative consent for every counterterrorism measure that would materially impair individual freedoms.
On the other hand, we've been here before, though I have to say the argument took place before any spying took place. Big difference there.

Even George Will is a little uneasy.
