NSA: Revealing Our Spying Methods Would Cause 'Grave Damage To National Security'

•, Michael Kelley
 The National Security Agency is claiming immunity from an Electronic Frontier Foundation lawsuit that argues warrantless wiretapping violates the rights of U.S. citizens, Philip Janquart of Courthouse News reports.

Lead plaintiff Carolyn Jewel claims the U.S. government conducted "indiscriminate" surveillance of American citizens with the help of telecommunications companies following 9/11.

The NSA moved to dismiss last week in a 48-page memorandum, claiming that "disclosure of the privileged information reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to national security."
