Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explains the danger of the administrations legal position:LINKAll Im saying is the inherent authority argument in its application to me seems to have no boundaries when it comes to executive decisions in a time of war, it deals the Congress and courts out, Mr. Attorney General.The problem isnt that the administration is monitoring communications with al Qaeda. That is not only appropriate, its essential. The problem is that the legal underpinnings of this particular program, if accepted, would allow for unchecked executive authority.
No president should have unchecked authority, especially not this one.
