Um, excuse me. You're talking about it, so it's out there. You've already alleged (lied probably, like every other time your mouth opens) that you're only snooping on calls involving KNOWN Al-Qaeda folks going out of the country or coming into the country. You said that in your press conference. IF that is true, how much more can a law to restrict the spying to those folks damage your program? YOU already gave away the core of it - UNLESS YOU WERE LYING AGAIN.
