Possible Deal Reached to Legalize NSA Surveillance Program

Reports are coming out that Sen. Arlen Specter has made a deal with the White House which bring the government's broad surveillance program back under some outside supervision.

He is saying that the White House has agreed to legislation that would give the FISA Court (created by the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) review the Constitutionality of the NSA program and oversee they way it is conducted.

But the law would also allow for more wiretaps without a warrant and for roving wiretaps. to judge whether the National Security Agency's domestic eavesdropping program is allowed under the Constitution.
