THE ACLU HAS DROPPED ITS LAWSUIT AGAINST THE PATRIOT ACT:
The ACLU said it was withdrawing the lawsuit filed more than three years ago because of “improvements to the law.” The Justice Department argued last month that amendments approved by Congress in March 2006 had corrected any constitutional flaws in the Patriot Act.
Rob Port thinks there’s a political angle, too. Regardless, I guess this means the end of the Patriot Act as an election slogan.
