Follow up to previous postings on domestic surveillance programs, news today that 6th Circuit found none of the plaintiff’s had standing against the NSA with regard to the Terrorist Surveillance Program (TSP). See the ACLU press release: “In a 2-1 decision, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals today dismissed a legal challenge to the Bush administration’s warrantless surveillance program. The challenge was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of prominent journalists, scholars, attorneys and national nonprofit organizations who say that the unchecked surveillance program is disrupting their ability to communicate effectively with sources and clients.”
