Statutes Raised Above Constitution

Have you noticed that the people against Bush's wiretapping program read the FISA statutes very strictly while most of them read the Constitution very expansively? The former is a statute that outlines investgative authority of the government that was enacted prior to the techno explosion in the communications field. However, the Constitution is deemed as a mere outline to be liberally shaped or "interpreted" to the changing fads of an era.

Do people see the difference between the authority of a statute versus a Constitutional prohibition?
