The NSA wiretap order and program: is it legal?

I've mentioned when commenting on the NSA wiretapping program that an initial caveat is that I'm no lawyer. Well, John Hindraker at Power Line is a lawyer and has done a very detailed analysis of the legality of that program. Bottom line: it's legal. It's also not the 1st time a President has done exactly this sort of thing and used the same justifications. You owe it to yourself to take a few moments and read it.
