Steve, George W. Bush gave George Tenent the highest honor a civilian can earn. Will you agree that he knows what he's talking about or can you provide a reputable link showing otherwise?

Excerpts; link below; my emphasis.

"We do not collect against US persons unless they are agents of a foreign power, as that term is defined in law. We do not target their conversations for collection in the United States unless a FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] warrant has been obtained from the FISA court by the Justice Department. And we do not target their conversations for collection overseas unless Executive Order 12333 has been followed and the Attorney General has personally approved collection."
