Parts of Patriot Act Declared Unconstitutional

A Federal Judge in New York declared parts of the Patriot Act unconstitutional this afternoon.  Judge Victor Marrero ordered the FBI to stop sending national security letters to Internet providers demanding customer information because it prohibits recipients from revealing their existence and does not provide judicial oversight.  The President is not going to like this one bit.
