Obama Moves To Block Challenge To Warrantless Wiretapping Program


rawstory.com

President Barack Obama invoked "state secrets" to prevent a court from reviewing the legality of the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program, moving late Friday to have a lawsuit that challenged the program dismissed.

The move -- which holds that information surrounding the massive eavesdropping program should be kept from the public because of its sensitivity -- follows an earlier decision in March to block handover of documents relating to the Bush Administration's decision to spy on a charity. The arguments also mirror the Bush Administration's efforts to dismiss an earlier suit against AT&T.

The Friday brief involves a lawsuit filed by the civil liberties group Electronic Frontier Foundation, which is suing the NSA for the wiretapping program. The agency monitored the telephone calls and emails of thousands of people within the United States without a court's approval in an effort to thwart terrorist attacks.

Spying has always been worthy of the death-penalty, in several countries. As innocent people in this country & abroad are being watched & followed by our enemies, there's people rotting in prison for this crime. Yet, those who spy; follow (or even expose the criminal-activities of) government-shills throughout the world are often threatened to cease by order of the occult-government.

Many spies (and those, who have falsely been convicted of spying) are imprisoned for many years (until they've learned not to do as their oppressors have done to them).

Just another reason that I believe Obama is a sham. He could have gained a lot of respect right there.
