Via Majikthise, the WaPo says that Bush is moving away from his maximalist vision of his own privileges. Among other things, the FISA court will once again have to rubber-stamp wiretap requests.
Not terribly surprising. While Bush and his flunkies have always believed they could get awa with anything, a lot of that really had to do with an ultimately-complicit congress and press corps. Absent those, the technical legal arguments begin to look a bit benuded.
Kinda like the Emperor himself, these days. Good thing he's in good shape, I suppose.
