Back in 2004 the blundering government accidentally sent Al-Haramain, a charity designated having provided financial and material support to al Qaida and other terrorist organizations, a classified document supposedly indicating that the organization and two of its lawyers had been wiretapped. Excuse me, but when an organization has most likely provided funds to our enemy I would hope the government does keep an eye on them. Anyway, the charity returned the classified document to the government, but later they filed suit against our government with the cheering of the ACLU. They decided to rely on their memory of the document to pursue their lawsuit. The ACLU and other groups have filed several lawsuits challenging Bush's wiretapping program, but they were all dismissed because the plaintiffs had absolutely zero evidence or standing and propped their entire cases on their paranoia alone. Civil liberty groups had high hopes for this case because it was the only case they had with anything resembling evidence. Their hopes were dashed today because a federal judge in San Francisco dismissed their case.
