If you haven't seen the latest from RT.com today, you must see this one: http://rt.com/usa/state-secrets-nsa-lawsuit-continue-807/

It seems US District Judge Jeffrey White in San Francisco, California refused to allow the Obama administration to end a lawsuit by citing the ‘state secrets’ privilege. That suit, filed in 2008, "Jewel vs. National Security Agency, by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and "a group of AT&T customers" claimed the Bush administration had conducted an "illegal and unconstitutional program of dragnet communications surveillance" without the use of a warrant. This indeed is a victory for all of us who are being illegally spied upon, first by Bush and now by Obama.

The only unfortunate thing about this story is that in all probability, this case will end up in front of the US Supreme Court and will be reversed by the 5 facist judges who still think corporations are people and money is speech. I wonder who much each of them is paid for their constitutionally corrupt decisions.
