The Guardian:

> US district judge William Pauley said the dragnet program “represents the government’s counter-punch” to al-Qaida in the wake of the 9/11 terror attacks. The decision conflicts with a ruling in another case, increasing the likelihood that the US supreme court will take up the issue.

I think the best thing that can happen is for the Supreme Court to rule on this — one way or another we need an open court ruling and the Supreme Court is the best court to hand down this ruling.
