    There are at least two other cases working through the court system, a few weeks ago the first ruling on NSA was opposite this ruling. One of the cases will eventually make it to the supreme court and then we will see how far the surveillance state will really be able to go.

    Excerpt from the above story:

    In his ruling Friday in ACLU vs. James R. Clapper, US District Judge William Pauley said that the US government had a pressing need for the surveillance program as a method for detecting and preventing terrorist attacks and that it did not go to unreasonable lengths in that pursuit.

    in honor of Clappers ruling a friend wrote this limerick

    There once was a bureaucrat named Clapper
    Who lied on on the stand like a Rapper
    He claimed the NSA
    Could legally disobey
    The Constitution & toss it into the Crapper

    The ACLU said this:

    The ACLU vowed to press on with the case.
    “We are extremely disappointed with this decision, which misinterprets the relevant statutes, understates the privacy implications of the government’s surveillance and misapplies a narrow and outdated precedent to read away core constitutional protections,” said Jameel Jaffer, ACLU deputy legal director, in a statement. “As another federal judge and the president’s own review group concluded last week, the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of telephony data constitutes a serious invasion of Americans’ privacy. We intend to appeal and look forward to making our case in the Second Circuit.

    rana, there has been no debate between you and me, on this subject, which you originated. Thus, no thrill for you, as no debate originated.
