    Wrong. Just think about it. Osama BinLaden is calling Mohammad Atta, we're listening in, but Atta's american roommate picks up the phone.

    We hang up.

    A minute later he puts Atta on the phone with BinLaden.

    If not, the Judge can refuse to admit the evidence.

    You just described the technique that the Mafia used to use. It was highlighted in the movie "Goodfellas", which was based on a true story.

    They would have their wives call each other, and because the wives were not on the warrant, the FBI had to hang up after a min. or so, so when the women heard the FBI disconnect the guys would get on the line for a quick conversation about where to meet.

    The NSA saw the movie, as did the FISA court. The court ruled that they can continue recording, even knowing they are recording an american citizen, and retain the recording for 7 years.

    And the FISA court did not invent the concept of co-conspirators.

    That's what masking does....it hides the identities of Americans not being surveilled, unless they were conspiring or the unmasking is necessary to understand the intel gathered....

    One asks questions - the other provides answers.

    To reject their questions is to reject their bias.

    To reject their answers without review or rebuttal is missing a learning opportunity.

    Actually, you're only basking in your delusions of adequacy. You really suck at logical debate.
