Legally speaking, it is a brilliant strategy! Obviously, any self-respecting al-Qaeda operative (is that an oxymoron?) will plan everything in graphic detail on ordinary, everyday domestic telephone lines. This is exactly how we foiled those vicious bastards on 9/11, remember? We were all over that plan... erm... no, wait. Well, if our dictator-for-life wants it, it just has to be good for us, right? I mean, that's what life under an ultra right-wing neo-fascist regime is all about, isn't it? Welcome to America! Love it or leave it!
(God, did I just say that? Even in a satirical context that felt dirty... I'll go have a thorough wash, lol...)
