    Anyone else appreciate the irony of a secret court upholding a secret program that collects information on unsuspecting citizens constitutional?

    Great find. Great for Yahoo. Very scary for anyone who values their rights.

    Didn't the ruling that this was unconstitutional come earlier this year? That is from 2008.

    I think there is a high probability that everything done was done legally. But it is time to take back the blank check and tear it up.

    The ruling was not to deny this surveillance - just that they could not compel nondisclosure of the surveillance from the providers.

    A ruling to prevent this blanket invasion of our privacy is long overdue... time to tear up the blank check as MOI rightly notes.
