Is anyone out there honestly surprised by this:

Justice Department Says F.B.I. Misused Patriot Act

I mean, just how stupid do you have to be to think that law enforcement would not abuse the powers given to them by the Patriot Act.

The writers of our Constitution really were smart guys and really did know what they were doing.  Why can’t we seem to get it through our heads that giving anyone the power to invade a citizen’s (or non-citizen’s) privacy without due process of law is a bad idea for everyone?
