From today’s L.A. Times editorial:
In a powerful opinion released Monday in Washington, U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon castigated what he called an “almost-Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States.” Yet Leon also noted that the government had not cited “a single instance” in which the data had stopped an imminent attack.
A few months ago I noted the NSA’s poor ROI.
Finally, someone in government is doing their job! I had hoped that Congress would exercise oversight of the NSA, but the Judicial branch has beaten Congress to the punch. Note that Judge Leon is a George W. Bush appointee.
