A federal judge in California has rejected President Bush's stated view that he is authorized to ignore the law and institute warrantless surveillance of Americans.
US District Court Judge Vaughn R. Walker confirmed that the 30-year-old Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is the "exclusive" means for domestic intelligence collection. Walker, chief judge for the Northern District of California, is hearing legal challenges to the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program as well as lawsuits against telecommunications companies AT&T and Verizon.

The Democrat apologists and disinformation agents on ATS really need to stop quoting from known DNC propaganda sites like rawstory, dailykos, etc. This has an actual New York Times story behind it, which should be used. Rawstory is not a "news" site, its your daily dose of Democrat talking points. We need a "propaganda spin" section for this sort of stuff, if your not going to use the original story without the partisan propaganda:
