Another Disturbing Court Decision

What passes for justice these days?  A Federal Appeals Court has overturned a lower court ruling and so denied the defense access to FISA court material which may shed light on the case against Adel Daoud.  Defense counsel are seeking to see if there is evidence Daoud was entrapped.

The Guardian has a good overview of things in this article.  Kevin Gosztola at the Firedoglake site has a very good report.

We should all take note of the sentiments of Defense counsel Thomas Durkin:  "The adversary system is the foundation of civil liberties in this country, and this opinion drives another significant wedge into that time honored process..." 

Again, I'm left shaking my head at the arrogance of the "national security state."
