Psst... Say that again

A U.S. federal judge has ruled on the side of common sense on Thursday ruled that the U.S. government's domestic eavesdropping program is unconstitutional and ordered it ended immediately.

The Bush Administration disagrees and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said the ruling will be appealed.

The Administration’s rationale:

"The program is carefully administered and targets only international phone calls coming into or out of the United States where one of the parties on the call is a suspected al Qaeda or affiliated terrorist."

Comments:
A cherry picked judge whose ruling will not last two minutes in a higher court.

National Review "fisks" the ruling.

A good read.
