BROWNBACK STANDS UP Via Daily Kos, from the Lawrence (Kansas) Journal-World:
U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., on Friday said the Bush administration needed to answer questions about spying on Americans without court authorization.


"I do not agree with the legal basis on which they are basing their surveillance--that when the Congress gave the authorization to go to war that that gives sufficient legal basis for the surveillance," he said.

He said if the justification holds up, "you’re going to have real trouble having future Congresses giving approval to presidents to go to war."
