Defense lawyers in some of the country's biggest terrorism cases say they plan to bring legal challenges to determine whether the National Security Agency used illegal wiretaps against several dozen Muslim men tied to Al Qaeda. The lawyers said in interviews that they wanted to learn whether the men were monitored by the agency and, if so, whether the government withheld critical information or misled judges and defense lawyers about how and why the men were singled out.

The expected legal challenges, in cases from Florida, Ohio, Oregon and Virginia, add another dimension to the growing controversy over the agency's domestic surveillance program and could jeopardize some of the Bush administration's most important courtroom victories in terror cases, legal analysts say. The question of whether the N.S.A. program was used in criminal prosecutions and whether it improperly influenced them raises "fascinating and difficult questions," said Carl W. Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond who has studied terrorism prosecutions.
I predicted this on December 19th - three days after the original TRAITOROUS article appeared. This leak is part of a CONCERTED effort by the enemy and their comrades on the Left to diminish our effectiveness to combat the jihadoterrorists.

[WHY ARE THE JIHADOTERRORIST AND THE LEFT ALLIED? The jihadoterrorists and the post-modern Left BOTH want to see the USA "humbled." They want this in order to "humble" the entire West. They blame all the world's problems on the West (and on Judeo-Christian values), and see the USA as the protector of the West - as the "Great Satan" - which has wrought world-wide poverty and inequity through imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and globalism. And they also blame the USA for global warming.]

I also argued in my December 19th post, that the leakers should be arrested, charged, tried and shot for treason. I believe this now more than ever.

Today, I heard the the lawyers for Iyman Faris, the fellow who planned to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge, wants the case dismissed. And tonight Moussaoui's attorney was blabbing the same.

Is our nation so stupid as to free convicted terrorists? Yes, if the Left have their way.

The leak on the part of the NY Times has endangered all of us. And if interpret law correctly, the President is well within his powers to check on those who contact the overseas enemy. Okay, I'm not a lawyer, but I am a citizen. NSA's surveillance activities make me safer.
