In a shocking ruling, a Federal court in the District of Columbia has ruled against an ACLU lawsuit alleging Amir Meshal had his constitutional rights violated when being held by the FBI overseas. Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled in favor of the federal prosecution’s argument that any violations of constitutional rights within matters of so-called “national security,” are exempt from judicial reconciliation afterwards. Bluntly stated, if you are an American citizen the American government just declared that it only has to observe your constitutional rights while you’re on American soil.
