“Secret” interpretation of PATRIOT Act will remain secret – court

Damn and blast. The ACLU and New York Times have lost their lawsuit against the government that sought disclosure of the “secret interpretation” of the PATRIOT Act. District Judge William H. Pauley III of the Southern District of NY ruled that the government met its burden in claiming the requested memo was exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.

So we, the people, remain in the dark about how the DOJ is interpreting Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act – a law passed by our representatives.

In light of this, maybe it’s time for Congress to amend Section 215 to rewrite it in such a way that it permits no other interpretation other than what they intend.

Read the court ruling here.
