Bill O’Reilly proves the NSA program works WITH warrants

While talking to the head of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff about the "London Terror Plot" about how the NSA helped Britain, O'Reilly proves that getting FISA court approval works. (Which has been the whole issue behind warrantless wiretaps)

O’Reilly: The fact that the NSA was able to intercept these phone calls that were made in the United States to al-Qaeda in Britain. By using the very controversial, although I understand that warrants were obtained for this by the FISA court…does that mean in your opinion that the Bush administration is ahhhhh–justified now in its original policy? Is this a big win politically for you guys?
