For those of you in the know you remember the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a lawsuit againt the Bush administration because of their enacting of warrentless wire tapping.
This lawsuit started in October of 2008. The then administration asked to delay any response until April of 2009. The EFF decided this would be good for their case since there would be an administartion change.
We have that new administration now. They ran on a platform promising government transparency and change. No longer would American citizens have to live under such unconstitutional laws as warrantless wire tapping.
Well at least that’s what they promised. They down right lied. Here is a good article with the bew administration’s response on the case along with a detailed analysis…
Notice anything familiar? The response sounds exactly like the justification the previous administartion gave for enacting the act.
All of this is done to fight terrorists and national security would be at risk is they devildged what exactly was being recorded. Civil rights be damned.
So much for change huh?
