The Department of Justice for the first time Friday notified a criminal defendant that the terrorism-related charges against him stemmed from Congress' 2008 amendments to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

The filing came after Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, the government's advocate to the Supreme Court, won an internal Justice Department debate over whether defendants must be advised about such secret surveillance.

The case against Jamshid Muhtorov, 35, a refugee from Uzbekistan living in Aurora, Colo., now appears destined to become the test case for whether the warrantless surveillance program can pass constitutional muster.

And the Supremes are not going to be happy since the Administration flat out lied the last time this came up.

I hope you're right, but I'm betting it will be upheld. With the warped Justices that are in there now, the Justices will find a legal loophole to make it easier. It's like 5 extra lawyers for the Administration...

Waste of time. SCOTUS will listen politely and say it's fine, nothing to see here, move along, etc. The new Amerika......

If the Supreme Court says this is ok, I'm done with the law.

The Supreme Court is the problem, not the solution.

Legislating from the bench, FTW.
