I congratulate the American Civil Liberties Union for its successful suit against the Bush Administration's ability to wiretap without having a warrant. The judge ordered this policy to be stopped immediately because it was a violation of civil rights and privacy rights guaranteed by the Constitution. This administration has been very successful in placing conservative judges all over the country. Apparently Michigan is one of the places that they overlooked. It is precisely because of this that the progressive community and those who cherish the Constitution cannot savor this apparent victory because George W. Bush has already appealed this decision and will move on placing this case with another judge. The question now seems to be will this court decision last. This is fourth "big loss" for the Bush Administration: first the ruling on affirmative action, followed by the national rejection of attempt to privatize Social Security, which was followed by a judge deciding that prisoners of war in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib must be given their due process in agreement with the Geneva accords.
