Thwarts and All

The Veep gave a speech strongly defending W’s eavesdropping program explaining that it might have thwarted some attacks and could’ve prevented 9-11 had it been in place prior to the attacks.

But wait.

By using the existing secret court, W could have been tapping phones in a few hours and even has the ability to tap first and get the expedited warrant later.

So what is it about going around the secret court that gives us any measurable advantage?

Concentration is important!
