Dubya must be having a fit!

“A ruling earlier today by U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit should stop the warrantless wiretapping program being conducted by the National Security Agency in its tracks (TelecomWeb news break, Aug. 4), but there is a chance it will continue during an almost certain appeals process. “

“This is a challenge to the legality of a secret program undisputedly inaugurated by the NSA at least by 2002 and continuing today, which intercepts without benefit of warrant or other judicial approval, prior or subsequent, the international telephone and Internet communications of numerous persons and organizations within this country,” she wrote. “The [wiretapping] has been acknowledged by this Administration to have been authorized by the President’s secret order during 2002 and reauthorized at least 30 times since… Plaintiffs have prevailed, and the public interest is clear, in this matter. It is the upholding of our Constitution.”

Oh, that pesky Constitution! What’s a President to do?
