Contact: Office of Public Affairs, US Department of Justice, 202-514-2007


WASHINGTON, July 6 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following text is a statement by Brian Roehrkasse, Acting Director of Public Affairs, regarding today's ruling in ACLU v. NSA:


"We are pleased with the Court's decision today, which confirms that plaintiffs in this case cannot seek to expose sensitive details about the classified and important Terrorist Surveillance Program. The Terrorist Surveillance Program was a vital intelligence program that helped detect and prevent terrorist attacks. It was always subject to rigorous oversight and review. Any electronic surveillance that was being conducted pursuant to the TSP is now being conducted subject to the approval of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court."
