NSA Claims Wiretapping Program Illegal

The National Security Agency provided a list of "talking points" about the warrantless eavesdropping program on American's in America to Senate intelligence agency chair, Pat Roberts (R-Kan) that somehow ended up on the pages of WaPo. The one that caught my eye, was the one that admitted guilt.

"Current law is not agile enough to handle the threat posed by sophisticated international terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda"

So instead of following the law, that is not "agile enough" (72 hour retro-warrants are waaay too slow) they chose to ignore the law. Which is a polite way of saying they are engaged in criminal activity, and their own talking points point that out. Can somebody get a judge on the phone?
