In Court, Government Argues Citizens Can't Challenge Government In Court

Convenient.

After years of secrecy, the National Security Agency’s phone records surveillance program had its day in open court on Friday, as civil liberties lawyers asked a federal judge in New York to shut it down, and government lawyers claimed ordinary Americans cannot legally challenge it.

Can’t we find some intermediate ground, where the NSA can do its job but not run around completely unchecked?

No?

Who is knocking at my door this late on a Friday???
