Supreme Court Rejects ACLU Challenge to Warrantless Surveillance

The Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down a legal challenge to the warrantless domestic spying program President George W. Bush created after the September 11 attacks,” reports Reuters. “… Bush authorized the program to monitor international phone calls and e-mails of U.S. citizens without first obtaining a court warrant.… The administration abandoned the program about a year ago, putting it under the surveillance court that Congress created more than 30 years ago.… The Supreme Court sided with the administration and rejected the appeal without any comment.”
