There is no doubt in my mind that this is only the latest -- not the final -- word in the disclosure debate about the NSA surveillance programs. It's a step in the right direction. But only a step. Two court challenges are still winding their way through the federal judiciary and many legal experts predict that the US Supreme Court is where they will end up.  IMO that's where a resolution of the privacy/constitutionality issues belong. But the wheels of justice grind slowly....
