(CNN) -- A federal judge on Thursday ruled that the U.S. government's warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered it ended immediately.And it took how many months to figure that one out? Felt rather obvious to me, you can't wiretap me unless you get permission and show just cause - even if I'm a terrorist. Oddly enough, our country believes they have rights too.
Benjamin Franklin summarized it well -
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.Seems to me that our intelligence organizations have lost their cold war edge - time to refocus.
