Court Rules NSA Program Illegal
A federal appeals court ruled on Thursday that the telephone metadata collection by the NSA is illegal under the Patriot Act. Even though the government has argued that they have the power to carry with the program under a section of the Patriot Act. This is important because it shows the NSA has messed with our privacy and our rights. This relates to history because it messes with the 4th Amendment and the Patriot Act.
