OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO CONTINUE WIRELESS WIRETAPS

Dy’er Sez: Citing that it would expose ongoing intelligence work, Attorney General Holder is planning on dropping a lawsuit filed against the government over wireless wiretapping of the American public. Recently, Obama signed into law a bill which made the release of torture photos and information neigh impossible, making him a war criminal by covering up the war crimes of the Bush administration. Now he is making sure that his, as well as the prior administration, will never be taken to task for unconstitutional snooping on the American public.

And considering the reason for dropping said lawsuit is to keep from exposing ongoing intelligence work, it’s plainly obvious that wireless wiretapping is continuing under Obama.

Same as the old boss.

Holder’s effort to stop the lawsuit marks the first time the administration has tried to invoke the state secrets privilege under a new policy it launched last month designed to make such a legal argument more difficult.

Under the state secrets privilege, the government can have a lawsuit dismissed if hearing the case would jeopardize national security.
