20 Organizations and Counting vs. the NSA

It was just announced that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has joined the Electronic Frontier Foundation and 18 other organizations in a lawsuit against the National Security Agency (NSA) for violating the First Amendment rights of millions of Americans.

See: http://www.cair.com/press-center/press-releases/12011-cair-joining-lawsuit-over-nsa-phone-spying.html.

The lawsuit specifically questions an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ordering Verizon Wireless to surrender to the NSA, on a daily basis, information on all telephone calls within its system.    This indiscriminate collection of personal information under the auspices of the NSA and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is one of the most serious governmental breaches of privacy that the United States has ever encountered.
