A federal district judge in Manhattan ruled that the National Security Agency does not have to tell lawyers for Guantanamo Bay detainees whether or not it wiretapped their telephones because either confirming or denying the surveillance would reveal national security information. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote said the intelligence agency cannot be required to disclose information about its surveillance programs. (6/26/08)
