The definitive legal evaluation of the warrantless domestic spying

In case you've somehow missed them til now: the first letter to Congress and second letter to Congress from Harold Hongju Koh, Ronald Dworkin, Richard Epstein, David Cole, Martin Lederman, and nine other top legal minds, taking apart the Bush team's flaccid arguments for the warrantless domestic spying program.

Funny how both Harold Koh and John Yoo describe their background in Korea as a prompting for their views on the law... to what diametrically opposite conclusions - our own law-professor-recapitulation of the divide between North and South Korea, one embracing democracy and human dignity, the other, exalting the state into godlike power over its subjects.
