ACLU Lawsuit Against NSA Is Weak

Another hat tip to AJ Strata

Certainly folks that knowingly correspond with known and suspected terrorists should know they are taking a risk, and that such treasonous actions comes with consequence. It is obvious that the ACLU’s case is weak. Here are some initial assessments.

For instance, former New Jersey Judge and constitutional scholar Andy Napolitano says that the lawsuits will probably be thrown out by whichever judges are assigned to the cases. He says that the cases have no standing since the plaintiffs are saying “they believe? or “they think,? and possess no proof of injury to themselves as a result of the NSA program.

A former Marine intelligence officer, NYPD detective and owner of an international security and investigations agency says that the attorneys should know that their lawsuits will go nowhere and wonders why the members of the news media do not tell Americans the truth.

“All these people need to do is read the FISA Act. It’s not mandatory for the President to seek their permission during a war,? he says

Mark Levin, legal scholar with the Landmark Legal Foundation and author of the book Men In Black, says that this whole frenzy is nothing more than left-wing groups attempting to undermine the war effort. He says that the ACLU in particular is against any action taken to fight terrorism. They are even hunting for the courts they believe have the most liberal judges who may entertain their nonsense

AJ says:

The ACLU is an institution that is putting itself out of our misery. 

I hope he is right. One thing for sure is that besides all the “ifs? and “mights? this frivilous and dangerous lawsuit is based on, many of the plaintiffs in the case are the very people that the government should be listening to. And not just the ACLU and CAIR.

Debbie Schlussel points out who is behind the lawsuit and why.

I’m not referring to the famous Plaintiffs about whom you’ve heard: For example, Christopher Hitchens, the well-known Vanity Fair writer who is tight with convicted felon lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s money launderer Grover Norquist. (Norquist’s receipt of thousands from Saudi charities raided by Customs for billions in Al-Qaeda money laundering is well-known, and Hitchens wrote glowingly of Norquist’s efforts on behalf of radical Islam).

I’m referring to ACLU lawyers Noel Saleh, Mohammed Abdrabboh, and Nabih Ayad, the ACLU Plaintiffs named in the yesterday’s Complaint, and attorney William Swor, a member National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers–all named in the lawsuit. They are exactly the kind of people whom the federal government SHOULD be watching, but probably isn’t. One of these men admitted to funding Hezbollah, one was accused of tampering with a witness, and a third signed a document contradicting statements he made in the lawsuit. Not to mention, one of these attorneys engaged in exactly the same “spying? (on me) that he now opposes when done by the NSA.

Their clients are no different from that of convicted Attorney Lynn Stewart’s (convicted of helping the Blind cleric spread terrorist messages in Egypt), and in some cases, their behavior is far worse. Yet, instead of monitoring them, the federal government’s representatives in Detroit have been courting them, their clients, and friends in a series of exclusive meetings.

Take Noel Saleh. The thrice-disciplined attorney (who was suspended from the practice of law) openly stated at a town hall meeting with federal officials that he has financially contributed to Hezbollah. He heads an Arab welfare agency that gets millions in our tax dollars, yet was raided by the FBI for engaging in Medicaid fraud. The organization also spent thousands in our tax dollars on “job training? (commercial driving lessons and attempts at HazMat hauling certificates) for two men indicted as members of the Detroit Al-Qaeda terror cell. He has represented a number of Islamic terrorists, including Ibrahim Parlak and “former? PFLP terrorist Imad Hamad.

Then, there is Mohammed Abdrabboh, a Palestinian attorney and ACLU of Michigan Board Member.

Not only does he represent a number of accused terrorists, he lied in signed documents about it. In the ACLU lawsuit, Abdrabboh’s ACLU claims:

86. As part of his criminal defense practice, Mr. Abdrabboh has represented and continues to represent people the government has suspected of allegedly having some link to terrorism or terrorist organizations
