60 Minutes to Report on 28 Pages Said to Link 9/11, Saudi Arabia

 

Do not forget what Senator Graham (the guy who wrote the pages) has said:

Appeals Court Says NSA Can Keep Trampling 4th Amendment With Phone Surveillance Program For Now

Appeals court overturned the NSA ruling from earlier this week. The government will continue its out of control unconstitutional abuses, spying on everyone without a warrant.

This is the same appeals court that overturned Leon’s earlier rulingfinding the program unconstitutional.
