HAYDEN EAVESDROPPING TYRANNY SELF-COUP
A self-coup is a form of coup d'état that occurs when a country's leader dissolves (disembowels or eviscerates) the national legislature and assumes extraordinary powers.
Warrantless eavesdropping by the NSA and/or others constitutes the establishment of Secret Police. Feingold is right to demand this self coup nonsense stops right here.
It augurs well for democracy and Constitutional adherence that the recently retired Generals are both restless and of the opinion that governmental policy should recive an open hearing, not be decided by a cabal of George, Dick, Rummy and god's will.
