The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a challenge to President Bush’s warrantless wiretap program.
The court, without comment, turned down a request by the ACLU to hear the appeal of a Cincinnati court ruling that said, basically, the ACLU couldn’t sue because the people who were suing had no evidence that they were being wiretapped.
With no warrant to check, how would anyone know that they’ve been wiretapped?
