    I agree, the man has done the right thing, even if ultimately it has no effect on the NSA's unconstitutional activity.

    true. Not by the FISCourt, at least. This should wind up on SCOTUS's calender, if there is any sense to the Appellate system.

    Time for the Supremes to rule on this, and not rely on 1979 decisions. Snowden did us all a favor whatever happens.
    This needs to be under (newer) Constitutional review.
