Not The President

The Wall Street Journal takes on the FISA judges' unwarranted assumption of national security authority (discussed on this blog here yesterday) (HT: Hugh Hewitt).

ABC News has a report up detailing more of the LA plot.

Many have asked what role FISA or the warrantless wiretaps played in preventing the attack. The short answer is absolutely none.

"Zaini, who has been detained without trial in Malaysia since he surrendered in December 2002, told Malaysian interrogators that he 'didn't want that kind of Jihad,' an official familiar with the interrogation told the AP.

"A senior police officer involved in the interrogation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Zaini told his Malaysian interrogators 'he was not prepared to die as a martyr, so he backed out.'"

The moral of the story appears to be that as long as terrorists decide not to carry out acts of terrorism and turn themselves in, we won't get hit again. I feel so much safer.
