A liberal without a cause? I did not posit my "rooting", there was no opinion on the morality of this action by me. You asked a question:

If you wish to refute my reasoning;1. Wikipedia is not a valid source for an educated audience and it will be ignored as it should be.2. A "news" source owned by Chris Hughes is definitely worse than wikipedia.3. You will have to refute the reasoning, not just the technicalities to convince anyone. Sure NSL gets around any need for any warrant anywhere until SCOTUS gets a hearing on them. That has as little to do with the original point and detracts from rational, cool-headed discussion just like your other hyperbolic statements and ad hominem.
