It looks as if there will be a price to be paid for the Bush Administration's illegal domestic wiretapping: criminal convictions - or rather, the prevention of them. According to the New York Times, defence attorneys in several high-profile terrorism cases are planning to challenge evidence on the basis that it was ultimately derived from illegal wiretaps. This could result in evidence being excluded as "fruit from a poisoned tree", cases being thrown out, and possibly even convictions being overturned. In other words, thanks to President Bush's egregious violation of US law and the constitution, suspected terrorists could walk free.
