Response to DOJ Brief:
I've been planning to take a close look at select parts of DOJ's 42-page brief in defense of the NSA surveillance program, but the posts turn out to be very time-consuming to write and get pushed to the backburner pretty easily. In the meantime, Marty Lederman has orchestrated a response that I think makes a number of persuasive points. I don't agree with all of it, but it's a notable response to the DOJ memo that deserves serious attention.
