If it was built by the Clinton Department of Justice on the foundation of the FISA law, the answer is about 3,000 lives. As Russ Feingold babbles about a 'Terrorist Rights Act' disguised as a censure of the President, an FBI agent - testifying for the defense - in the Mossaoui death penalty case, laid out the obfuscatory DoJ process popularly known as 'Gorelick's Wall'. It should actually be known as 'Reno's Wall' because she was the motivating force behind its erection.
Harry Samit certainly seems to know whereof he speaks and I have yet to read a more chilling indictment of the stupidity involved in denying the sharing of intelligence that could be used to prevent terrorist attacks on the basis of bureaucratic inertia occasioned by the difficulty in obtaining FISA warrants.
Russ Feingold wants a higher and stronger wall for the trrorists to hide behind. What a progressive idealist and what a total cretin - but I repeat myself.
