The simplicity of the NSA scandal
What this compilation reflects is the persistent clarity and simplicity of this issue. The eavesdropping on American citizens which Bush ordered (and continues to order) is a criminal offense under the law. Thus, the only way to defend George Bush is to argue -- as the Administration has been shamelessly arguing -- that he has the right to act in violation of this law (and others). As long as Bush opponents hammer at that point, I believe this scandal will not disappear until there is some serious accountability from the Administration, including punishment for all Administration officials who broke the law.
