The worthless far-left secular progressive gang of nuts and kooks at the ACLU have rightfully been slapped down by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court dealt a setback Tuesday to
civil rightsAmerica haters and privacy advocatesterrorist coddlers who oppose the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretappingterrorist surveillance program.
[Corrected for truth.]
A federal judge correctly pointed out that one must have proof before going ahead with a broad fishing expedition of a lawsuit that harms America’s security. The ACLU had none. In its aggressive BDS driven zeal to blame America first, the moonbats forgot to actually gather evidence to support their nonsense.
A federal judge in Detroit largely agreed, but the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the suit, saying the plaintiffs could not prove their communications had been monitored and thus could not prove they had been harmed by the program.
It was the only thing that the 6th Circuit Court could do. No proof, no suit. No harm, no foul.
The government has refused to turn over information about the closely guarded program that could reveal who has been under surveillance.
Only an imbecile would reveal to criminal terrorists that they are under surveillance. The ACLU would have us give preference to evildoers and cripple the United States from performing its sworn duty to protect Americans. That could not be allowed to happen.
It will be a good day indeed when the ACLU is put in its proper place: the ash heap of history.
Update: Karl, over at Protein Wisdom, has also noticed the shoddy, biased reporting on this story:
The Associated Press misreports:
The Supreme Court rejected a challenge Tuesday to the Bush administration’s domestic spying program.
The bias here is blatant, insofar as the Terrorist Surveillance Program involves international communications and there is no evidence that US persons have ever been targeted by the program without a warrant.
Nice catch, Karl. I couldn’t agree more.
