NSA - Metadata legal

As I thought would be the case (no pun intended), the Federal Judiciary has overturned last week's ruling that the NSA metadata programs are unconstitutional. That was the correct decision - management of these programs belongs with the Executive and the Legislature. As the reviewing Judge noted, these NSA programs help to find valuable information in an ''Ocean of seemingly disconnected data''. As I've argued before, the US experience in Iraq proves how this method of intelligence collection can save many lives.
