Audio From ACLU v. NSA Hearing Today

Today, the ACLU urged the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a lower court ruling that the NSA's warrantless wiretapping is illegal and unconstitutional. Audio from the hearing is available at the Sixth Circuit's website as an MP3. Update: You can also download the MP3 from our servers here.

This case deals with the so-called "Terrorist Surveillance Program" that the President has publicly confirmed. EFF has sued AT&T for its role in the NSA's illegal spying, which we allege goes beyond what the President has directly admitted and intercepts the phone and Internet communications of millions of ordinary Americans. Last summer, Judge Walker rejected the government's motion to dismiss EFF's case, along with AT&T's motion to dismiss, and allowed the case to go forward. That ruling is also on appeal.

These cases are critical to stopping the illegal spying, but it's also important that Congress do its part -- take action now and tell Congress to start immediate and thorough investigations.
