The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) filed a lawsuit against the National Security Agency (NSA) and other government agencies today on behalf of AT&T customers to stop the illegal, unconstitutional, and ongoing dragnet surveillance of their communications and communications records. The five individual plaintiffs are also suing President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Cheney’s chief of staff David Addington, former Attorney General and White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales and other individuals who ordered or participated in the warrantless domestic surveillance.

Whilst I wish the EFF all the luck in the world, justice in the States is not a function of right or wrong, but in these cases a function of money. And I have a slight suspicion that these guys have a whole load more money than the EFF. Good job on at any rate making it look like the US wants to hold their leadership accountable for their actions.
