"Government Asserts It Is Above the Law"

In court no less. From the EFF.

As disturbing as these sorts of assertions are, perhaps some good may come of it. My impression is that the courts frown upon such extreme assertions of unconstrained power. Hopefully the courts will respond by rejecting the governments claims and further delineating the scope of the state secrets privilege, even if they do not rule against the government with regard to the NSA wiretapping program.
