Federal Judge Finds NSA Wiretapping Illegal

Yet another blow to the Bush-Obama warrantless surveillance scheme.

Update: Not that it matters or anything, but Glenn Greenwald was kind enough to point out that according to this judgment, President Bush (and whoever else complied with this program) is liable to spend time in jail. Specifically, the law provides that anyone who violates it shall be subject to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine for each offense. This means that President Bush, Vice President Cheney, CIA Director Michael Hayden and several others are all fugitives. Anyone up for a citizen’s arrest?
