    " First, the recent revelation that all appointees to the FISA Court are made by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is deeply troublesome because there is no reason to concentrate so much power in the hands of a single person on such a critical issue.

    " Second, it leaves me very uneasy that 10 of the 11 FISA court judges are Republicans.

    Just hearing this? I just hope that when those FISA cases reach the Supreme Court there is no "appearance" of conflict of interest.

    Volokh is good on all sorts of things that we only hear about later. Kinda libertarian tilt at times, though. ;)

    Way too political for these forums.
