Federal judge rules NSA anti-terrorist program unconstitutional

A federal judge appointed by Jimmy Carter has, I fear, made the country less safe today:

A federal judge ruled Thursday that the government’s warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it.

U.S. District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor in Detroit became the first judge to strike down the National Security Agency’s program, which she says violates the rights to free speech and privacy as well as the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution.

I can hear the champagne corks popping at the ACLU and NY Times…
