Did you notice the Catch-22?

Here's the passage:

A federal judge agreed, ruling the ACLU, Amnesty International, Global Fund for Women, Global Rights, Human Rights Watch, International Criminal Defence Attorneys Association, The Nation magazine, PEN American Center, Service Employees International Union and other plaintiffs did not have standing to bring the case because they could not demonstrate that they were subject to the warrantless eavesdropping.

So how would the plaintiffs even know if they had been subject to warrantless wiretapping -- which is stealthy by its very nature?

The Judge's decision shows an arrogance that boggles any sane mind. But it's not surprising -- given all we've seen.
