On People Who Won't Take "No" for an Answer

CNEWS Canada has published a story about the debate within the Ford administration over government use of secret wiretaps.

In 1976, Cheney and Rumsfeld were arguing that they were needed.

In 1978, Congress thought it ended the debate by passing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Some people just won't take "No" for an answer.

Today, after the current administration has engaged in unauthorized wiretapping, the Attorney General will speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee about his rationale for claiming their legality.
