Judge: Wiretap Program Unconstitutional

By SARAH KARUSH Associated Press Writer

August 17,2006 | DETROIT -- A federal judge ruled Thursday that the government's warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it.

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit became the first judge to strike down the National Security Agency's program, which she says violates the rights to free speech and privacy.

Interesting that it takes a woman to have the balls to stand up for our constitutional rights.
