WILL YOU, WON’T YOU, WILL YOU, WON’T YOU, WILL YOU JOIN THE DANCE?

An interesting observation over at Daily Kos about Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ defense of the NSA eavesdropping program: On the one hand, Gonzales argues that Congress had already implicitly authorized such a program. On the other hand, he says the administration declined to seek explicit authorization because “we were advised that that was not likely to be—that was not something we could likely get.” So Congress had authorized it… but they wouldn’t authorize it. Presumably victims of false consciousness in the latter instance. This must have something to do with that general-will/will-of-all distinction I never quite grokked.
