Most Liberal Court in Nation Upholds "Warrantless Wiretapping"

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the most liberal in the nation, ruled that the "warrantless wiretapping program" is covered by the "state secrets" privilege. Each of the three judges on the panel were appointed by Democrat Presidents.

The suit was brought by a Muslim "charity", the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, which was shut down by the Treasury Department's OFAC division, after it was designated a Foreign Terrorist Entity. The "charity" was really an al Qaeda money-laundering scheme.
