Say what!!!!

Earlier today a U.S. District Court judge, Justice William Pauley, dismissed an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit alleging that the National Security Agency's phone records program was unconstitutional, based primarily on his interpretation of the 1979 Smith v. Maryland Supreme Court ruling. But elsewhere in his ruling, the judge made what seems to be a slightly Kafkaesque argument to disregard the ACLU's statutory claim that the NSA was exceeding the bounds of section 215 of the Patriot Act.

I cant copy the paragraph in question, but essentially what the judge is saying is that the ACLU cant sue because they aren't supposed to know about it in the first place.

Does anyone else have a problem with that "logic"?
