With regard to the ruling by Detroit District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor that the National Security Agency’s surveillance program is unconstitutional:
This is a very bad ruling, and a victory not only for the liberal American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which brought this foolish lawsuit before the court, but also for the terrorists. (It should be here noted that this liberal activist judge was appointed by President Carter in 1979.)
This surveillance program is an essential tool in the war on terror. Intelligence agencies in the United States have confirmed that this domestic surveillance program has helped to prevent terrorist attacks and saved American lives since September 11.
Only last week we received a stark reminder that terrorists are still plotting to attack our country with the arrests in London.
This liberal judge’s ruling must be overturned by a higher court in the interest of our national security. Al Eisner Wheaton, Maryland
