Is The Patriot Act Unconstitutional or Constitutional?

Over at my hippo blog, I am starting a debate as to whether The Patriot Act is unconstitutional or constitutional. If anyone is interested in a good, healthy debate on this issue please stop over to my hippo blog.

In my U.S. Foreign Policy class, I am writing a paper on whether certain controversial parts of The Patriot Act such as -- roving wiretaps, or warrantless wiretaps, delayed notification searches and new authorities to obtain the library, credit card and health records of individuals who are not the subject of a criminal investigation but who might be of intelligence value in terrorism probes -- are in fact constitutional or not. So, I thought that this would be an interesting blog debate.
