Agreed. The burden of proof should be on the government. The court should have requested the government to identify the safeguards in place to protect citizenry which should include some form of independent monitoring.
While it seems so on its face, generally one cannot sue unless one demonstrates that harm/damage has occurred or such harm is imminent. Alito said in the majority opinion that this ruling is not intended to insulate the FISA expansion from judicial review. He essentially said, “Come back when you can prove that the government has intercepted your communications and we’ll hear the case.”
