American judge rules against NSA spying

Wisdom Quarterly;; Mitch Jeserich, Larry Klayman (KPFA, Berkeley)
Larry Klayman, who successfully challenged the military-industrial complex's spying apparatus, the NSA, in civilian court was interviewed on Pacifica's "Letters and Politics." He says, "I challenged the NSA in court because it's a totalitarian attack on human rights.
