Nut Hentoff justifies judge's ruling against NSA wiretaps
Nat Hentoff in his article for the Village Voice (http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0635,hentoff,74291,6.html)
claims that Judge Anna Diggs Taylor teaches President Bush about the Constitution.
Actually, I wonder if she or Nat Hentoff have actually read the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
1) Free Speech does not mean that your speech cannot result in negative consequences.
2) Free Speech does not gurantee the right to be heard, or it this case, the right not to be heard. (???)
3) Their is no right to privacy. There is a right against illegal search and seizure -- the word "listen" nor "privacy" is not part of the 4th Amendment.
Judge Anna Diggs Taylor did not teach anyone about the Constitution except that a Federal Judge does not have a clue what she is doing.
Furthermore, if Mr. Hentoff did some research, he would find this judge has been questioned repeatedly for her unethical behavior. Most notably, refusing to recuse herself from cases in which there exists an obvious conflict of interest. For more on this, check out Tom Fitton's article on HumanEvents.
