    U.S. 9th Circuit Court hands White House a huge victory....

    another blow to the looney left delivered by the looney left....

    [QUOTE][B]Court rejects challenge to warrantless wiretaps[/B]

    By Henry Weinstein, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
    10:36 AM PST, November 16, 2007

    A federal appeals court in San Francisco today handed a major victory to the Bush administration, ruling that a lawsuit challenging the government's warrantless wiretapping program could not go forward because of the "state secrets" privilege.

    In a 3-0 decision, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the government, which had argued that allowing an Islamic charity's claims that it was illegally spied upon to go forward would threaten national security.

    In the opinion, Judge M. Margaret McKeown flatly rejected the government's argument that "the very subject matter of the litigation is a state secret."

    However, after reviewing in camera sealed information from the government, McKeown said on behalf of the three-judge panel, "We acknowledge the need to defer to the Executive on matters of foreign and national security and surely cannot legitimately find ourselves second-guessing the Executive in this arena."

    A dark day for civil liberties.

    CBNY, this is as much a blow to true conservatives as it is to liberals. You can gloat all you want, but the fact is that the government continues to get bigger and more powerful.

    Let me ask you an honest question. Do you think 9/11 would have been prevented if today's wiretapping policies had been in place at the time?

    It's a shame that you can't see past the surface of policies like this. It's amazing what is and isn't done in the name of terrorism.

    A big government and universal health care are mutually exclusive concepts.

    90% yes....

    there's absolutely no reasoning with someone dense enough to make this statement....

    what's pathetic is you can't even comprehend what's going on or why the judges reached their verdict...

    hence even a judge from a widely known wacked out circuit whose first opinion was for the suit viewed the evidence the government had and made the admission that it was necessary for national security....

    Cool.


    The government is paranoid like a crackhead.


    Spy on Americans. Suck off the Saudis. Send pallets of unaccounted money to Iraqistan. Get Dubai to patrol the ports. Let terrorism flourish in Northern Pakistan.

    Gotta watch out for those Americans, though.


    Hey. Haven't most domestic terrorists been extreme righties? Blowing up abortion clinics and Olympic Parks?

    We should spy on them.

    Yeah, I'm afraid of Americans
    I'm afraid of the words
    I'm afraid I can't help it
    I'm afraid I can't

    I'm afraid of Americans
