The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court refused to release its opinions in two cases involving the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program. In one, the court ruled in favor of the program; in the other, the court’s ruling was more restrictive, prompting the administration to ask Congress for a new law. That prompted the ACLU to ask that the decisions, reflecting how the court reached its conclusions, be made public. (12/12/07)
