To the Editor:
   Messrs. Barr, Gorelick and Wainstein reassure us that the search of AP phone records was done in accord with "longstanding regulations" by which they seem to mean internal department of Justice guidelines. But these guidelines  are not laws. Laws, we are taught come from our ratified treaties, from our Congress and from our state legislatures. And it is the Executives job to "take care that these laws be faithfully executed".  
   The American people will be best served when our Department of Justice takes "care that these laws be faithfully executed" and leaves the enforcement of internal guidelines to someone in Human Resources.
