NSA Ruling...Nobody Likes It!

Perhaps the President was quite understated when he said he "strongly disagreed" with the ruling of Judge Anna Diggs Taylor regarding the NSA program.....

The rest of the world....liberal and conservative....have much stronger voice on the subject, and it is universally against the decision as written by Taylor. To find such a unanimous decision, even by those who do oppose the NSA program, is at the least interesting, and possibly a direct challenge to the credibility of this Judge.

Captain's Quarters - Capt. Ed, does a nice job of speaking to the reactions.... "Discomfort with the quality of the decision is almost universal, said Howard J. Bashman, a Pennsylvania lawyer whose Web log provides comprehensive and nonpartisan reports on legal developments. “It does appear,” Mr. Bashman said, “that folks on all sides of the spectrum, both those who support it and those who oppose it, say the decision is not strongly grounded in legal authority.”

Ed's entire post is a good read HERE!

I love a good anti-judge reaction....usually associated with the 9th Circuit, but certainly not limited to same. PowerLine's Scott W. attorney of note....explains it in his post...a MUST READ!

An appeal, an assured next step, will result in strictly egg-on-face for Judge Taylor. Well deserved, I might add.
