US News Article Reuters.com

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights filed seperate lawsuits in Federal Courts today challenging the legality of President Bush's use of wiretaps, without court authorization, in the so-called "war on terror." Both groups demand an end to the practice, contending it is illegal and violates Americans' Constitutional rights.

The ACLU suit names NSA Director Army Lt. Gen. Keith Alexander as a defendant. The CCR suit names George W. Bush and the heads of a number of security agencies.
