The New York Times published a long article today on secret rulings by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The article describes the FISA court as “almost a parallel Supreme Court” which has cast aside traditional understandings of privacy and the Fourth Amendment.
Reading between the lines, it is clear that NYT has the actual decisions….
There are lots of excellent comments on the NYT page for the article, including:
Stourley Kracklite White Plains, NY
The citizens of the United States ought not to have to rely on investigative journalism to find out the real operations of the government.
Holgar Bum SC
If it’s happening in secret, it’s not law, it’s diktat.
Absolutely frightening. A “star chamber” of eleven judges all appointed to seven year terms by Chief Justice John G. Roberts? Where is the outrage?
