Of course, without a warrant they can't wiretap anything.  Furthermore 
every warrant to wiretap has to be accompanied by evidence that justifies 
the warrant and signed by a federal judge who agrees that there is 
sufficient cause for the wiretap, and illegal wiretaps will not only get 
your case thrown out of court but your butt thrown in jail as well.

You're new here, aren't you? :)

We're talking here about the FBI, which has had problems with their abuse
of surveillance from J Edgar Hoover's early years up to the recent problems
with abuses of NSLs.  And you expect us to believe they'll toe the line
when using this surveillance ability?

Oh, and how much time did J Edgar spend in jail for his illegal wiretaps?
And how much time will anybody spend in jail for the NSL abuses?
