GEORGE BUSH--UNFAIR TO AL QAEDA!:

ACLU Announces Opposition to Alito Nomination (ACLU, 1/9/2006)

The American Civil Liberties Union announced today that it will oppose the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the United States Supreme Court.

Yesterday on NPR they were discussing whether lawyers for the terrorists we already hold would challenge the government cases against them on the grounds that NSA taps were illegal. The ACLU spokesman said that they weren't interested in those cases but would bring a challenge if someone changed the way they communicated because of prospective taps. Can't you just see the plaintiff: "I was forced to change my phone number so that when I contact Ayman al-Zawahari the feds can't listen in...."

Sounds like you're describing Lynne Stewart.

Perhaps the press is just upset because now they won't be able to take Zawahiri's (or Zarqawi's) phone calls.

I was going to add the word 'anymore', but I hope that hasn't been the case.
