· Congressman Rep. Matt Salmon on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that the NSA’s domestic metadata spying program is not authorized by section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act.“Members of Congress have long maintained that the domestic spying operations currently employed by the Executive Branch against American citizens are unconstitutional. Rather than respect the will of the people, the Executive Branch has pretended that it is interpreting the USA PATRIOT Act correctly and continued behavior that is in direct violation to our constitution. While it’s true that government has a duty to protect the nation, we must take care to do it in a way that protects the civil liberties of all Americans. When even the law’s principal author has ardently maintained that these actions are against the intent of the legislation, the outcome of this case at the trial court should’ve been easy to read. Fortunately, today the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has corrected the district court’s error and remanded the case to them for consideration of the Constitutional violations so clearly present. I look forward to seeing the outcome of that case.”
