Supreme Court Tosses Out ACLU Wiretapping Suit

The ACLU suffered a rather large defeat in their efforts to undermine America's security today when the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of a decision by a lower court dismissing an ACLU suit against the NSA over the US warrantless wiretapping program designed to intercept communications between suspected terrorists.

The has a major bearing on a little matter I've discussed here with you before,the Al-Haramain case.

The other major thread, of course, is immunity for telecom companies who've cooperated with the government. That case is still being decided in San Francisco as I write, and will doubtless end up in the Supreme Court as well.
