Re: Fingers crossed
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....

Fingers crossed
I'm really hoping that being in the UK and therefore part of Europea means that the European Court of Human Rights takes our intelligence agencies and government to task over this blanket data gathering. I feel bad for my pals in the US that there isn't the same overwatch going on there - here's hoping local politicians can help push through changes.
