EFF Sues NSA, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush & co.

by Irma Arkus

EFF has filed a lawsuit against NSA and current administration membership, including 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 others who have participated in an illegal en-masse domestic surveillance.

“In addition to suing AT&T, we’ve now opened a second front in the battle to stop the NSA’s illegal surveillance of millions of ordinary Americans and hold personally responsible those who authorized or participated in the spying program,” said Senior Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston.

The case involves a small room in San Francisco used by NSA to conduct mass surveillance illegally by its direct link to fibre-optic network.
