Former National Security Lawyer: 'FISA Unconstitutional'

Former National Security Lawyer and Central Intelligence Agency Officer H. Bryan Cunningham has submitted a 24-page letter to Arlen Specter, Patrick Leahy, and ten other Congressional leaders that raises serious questions about the Constitutionality of the FISA law.
Taken to its logical extreme, the Critics' position would fundamentally alter the system of separation of powers and checks and balances created by our Constitution, transforming our governmental system into one in which Congress alone reigns supreme in virtually all spheres of governmental action
Cunningham served under both the Clinton and Bush administrations.
