Bloomberg.com reported the following on on Jan. 17, 2006:

"The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights sued President George W. Bush and the National Security Agency to stop them from conducting wiretaps on U.S. citizens without court approval...

'President Bush may believe he can authorize spying on Americans without judicial or Congressional approval, but this program is illegal and we intend to put a stop to it,' said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero in a statement today...

The ACLU suit is filed against the National Security Agency on behalf of the ACLU and a group of non-profit organizations, journalists and professors who said they have 'a well-founded belief' that their telephone calls and e-mails to people in the Middle East are being intercepted by the government...

Both suits claim the government's wiretap program, which was started in response to the Sep. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, violates the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act."
