Breaking....
NSA eavesdropping program ruled unconstitutional
Judge orders immediate halt to program

(Non political book tag post below)

She further declared that the program "violates the separation of powers doctrine, the Administrative Procedures Act, the First and Fourth amendments to the United States Constitution, the FISA and Title III."
She went on to say that "The president of the United States ... has undisputedly violated the Fourth in failing to procure judicial orders."

The lawsuit, filed January 17 by civil rights organizations, lawyers, journalists and educators, "challenges the constitutionality of a secret government program to intercept vast quantities of the international telephone and Internet communications of innocent Americans without court approval."
The judge rejected the government's argument that the program is within the president's authority, according to the AP.


Watch wingnut heads explode with the standard whining about "activist judges".....
