Yes! Best news I’ve heard all day! Think Progress has the scoop:
Fox News reports a federal district court in Detroit has ruled that the Bush administration’s NSA warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it.
Only problem is: How will we ever know for sure that they’ve stopped the program? We didn’t know when they started it — it was revealed only recently. What mechanism do we have for ensuring that the NSA doesn’t simply change the name of the program and ignore the judge’s order?
The NSA is a rogue agency. We need Congress to crack it wide open and see what it’s been hiding all these years.
