Evidence? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Evidence!
Federal judges must be really intelligent and psychic as well. Here's yet another one (like the ones in my Da Vinci Code plagiarism case) who doesn't want to be distracted by mere facts.
A federal judge in San Francisco dismissed a lawsuit Wednesday that sought to prove President Bush acted illegally in 2001 when he ordered the wiretapping of phone calls between Americans and suspected foreign terrorists without court approval.
Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker said an Islamic charity on the government's terrorist list could not use a crucial classified document - an accidentally released memo indicating the charity and its lawyers had been wiretapped - to show that it had been harmed by the surveillance program and thus had the right to challenge it in court. But the organization's lawyer said he wasn't giving up.
