NSA's Surveillance Under TSP Declared Unconstitutional

A federal judge has ruled that the wiretap and tracking program that has been part and parcel of the Terrorist Surveillance Program is unconstitutional. What makes this decision interesting is that the judge who ruled on the case has a history of ignoring the law.

The Justice Department is appealing the decision and the NSA will continue the surveillance during the appeals process.

It figures that this judge would try to destroy the one program that has proven successful in derailing terrorist organizations from pulling of attacks here in the US. One thing that I've always been told and do understand is that the Constitution is not a suicide pact. Such actions have been taken before during times of war and the American people have understood and endorsed them. Apparently this judge has forgotten her history.
