Submission + - White House Tries to Prevent Judge From Ruling on Surveillance Efforts (nytimes.com) 2

mdsolar writes: The NYT reports: " The Obama administration moved late Friday to prevent a federal judge in California from ruling on the constitutionality of warrantless surveillance programs authorized during the Bush administration, telling a court that recent disclosures about National Security Agency spying were not enough to undermine its claim that litigating the case would jeopardize state secrets." Which seems circular since the secrecy is a tool used to defend the Constitution. The secrecy can't be more important than the Constitution can it?
