Duncan Hunter Knows His Priorities, Just Not His Facts

Republican presidential contender Duncan Hunter was asked by on yesterday's Hardball if he had any opinion on Alberto Gonzales's alleged perjury before Congress. Hunter demurred from answering for Gonzo, but used the airtime to slam the Democrats for ignoring what he thinks should be the priority for Congress: the "loopholes" in the FISA law.

The only problem? Those loopholes aren't really loopholes. They're protections to American citizens, not like silly things like civil liberties matter to Republicans like Duncan Hunter. The ACLU has compiled a list of myths and facts on the FISA laws.
