Obama Administration Seeks Dismissal of Wiretapping Lawsuit

April 7, 2009

The Obama administration Justice Department has asked a federal judge in San Francisco to dismiss a lawsuit that alleges the government engaged in illegal "dragnet surveillance" of American's telephone and e-mail communications...

Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Kevin Bankston said his group was disappointed the Obama administration is continuing the position of the previous administration.

Bankston charged that the current administration "is continuing the Bush administration's cover-up of the National Security Agency's dragnet surveillance of millions of Americans."

He said, "It feels like deja vu all over again."
