Government Opposes Release of FISA Court Decisions

Here I discussed a motion the ACLU filed with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for release of secret court rulings that, according to the Bush Administration, necessitated last month’s Protect America Act of 2007. This entry discussed the Court’s request for additional briefing.

The government filed its response on August 31. Needless to say, they oppose releasing the decisions. Public disclosure would involve a horrific risk of harm to national security, dontcha know. The government’s brief (.pdf, 24 pages) is available here.

    If you’re not doing anything wrong, you shouldn’t be wasting your time complaining about it!

    I’m born and raised America and so were my parents. I could care less what the government wants to know that I’m doing when it comes to breaking the law. Maybe you do because you’re doing something wrong. Oh well, huh?

    The ACLU is nothing but an anti-American group started by a anti-American. Everyone knows it. Everyone hates them. Matter of fact Michael Reagan just took up a cause to get them out of this country once and for all.

    Good riddance to them too! And they can take the United Nations with them!!!
