Yahoo fight among new NSA court documents to be made public

A new batch of secret court orders that govern the National Security Agency's surveillance programs soon could be public following major legal victories on Friday by transparency advocates.

Yahoo, which lost a battle with the government in 2008 over the legality of an NSA foreign surveillance program, will soon get its wish to have the public see the court rulings in that fight.

    Interesting to note that the GOP and the Tea Party wing nuts are absolutely silent about the fact that Yahoo filed their initial lawsuit during the BUSH administration.

    That's patience. But oddly when you deal with just sayin the other is more appropriate. Thanks for taking the time to criticize fair. I have a cheap phone and have difficulties hitting the right letters, so I use predict, and it gets past before I see it when I hurry. And yes the rich should pay more in ss, your more versed in the particulars but I don't need the details to know when I'm about to be screwed in favor of the likes of mitt Romney. Remember his tax plan? He and the other super rich pay 1.8%, and the loss in revenue be made up by the way working class. Are you saying that there is no class warfare being preparated by the rich? Even warren buffet admitted it. If you want to vote gop, I can respect that, your a taxpayer . I can't stand the though of people sleeping til noon and affording a better phone and car than me, knowing I support them, but what the gop is pushing us not the answer, I remember Sept Jan of 08, and I know why it happened, and that their idealistic tax plan would do it again
