by | Mar 5, 2013 | Interviews | 2 comments

Alexander Abdo, Staff Attorney for the ACLU National Security Project, discusses the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the ACLU’s challenge to the FISA Amendments Act and warrantless wiretaps; how the “standing doctrine” is used by courts to immunize the government from lawsuits; the evisceration of checks and balances on “national security” issues since 9/11; the government’s secret legal interpretation of the PATRIOT Act; and why it’s not too late to prevent a total surveillance-police state in the US.
