Domestic Spying Case Rejected by SCOTUS

The ACLU suit challenging the legality of the Bush Administration's domestic surveillance program will not be reviewed by the Supreme Court. The court rejected the appeal without comment, leaving in place the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals' ruling that the plaintiffs have no standing because they cannot prove that they have been victimized. Of course, the reason they can't prove it is that the administration has classified any information which indicates who was wiretapped, thereby rendering establishment of standing impossible.
