The Clinton administration authorized a series of illegal searches without warrants or probable cause. Apparently in 1994 the Clinton administration okayed a series of appartment searches for drugs in Housing Projects in 1994. The searches were stopped by court order in 1995.

At the time our country was not at war. We were under a terorist threat but not from the residents of public housing. The media and left wing accademics said absolutely zero about this program. This is a classic example of invasion of privacy.
Now the far left wants to hyperventilate about spying on terror suspects after 9-11. Some on the far left want to spin fairy tales about a new Pearl Harbor or Riechstag fire while handcuffing the governments ability to protect the citizens. There was even some critique of external radiation sweeps of Mosques.
Her royal majesty Hillary Clinton has never been asked about this farce. I am sure she will spin a yarn aboust vast right wing conspiracies and duck. Where were all these left wing clowns when the Clinton administration was shredding the Constitution. The first black President seemed to care less about the Civil Rights of Black people in housing projects.
The argument that people have a right to safety is a valid argument. Extending this Clintonism would allow the government to search the homes of Muslims and far left types without warrants. The vast preponderance of terrorist acts in the USA and the world are perpetrated by those two groups . No Republican has proposed something so illogical yet. However, to ignore those same realities in this day and age would be negligence and deriliction of duty . Muslims and far left types should be placed under scrutiny in this age of terrorism. If the government finds probable cause such as communication with terrorists watched and dealt with acordingly. External searches of Mosques and any other place for radioactivity are reasonable.
