This week the 9th circuit court of appeals upheld the conviction of the would be Portland Oregon Christmas tree bomber.

The federal court rejected the defense's argument that the FBI had entrapped the defendant and that the FBI unconstitutionally collected his emails without a warrant.

Not only does this ruling uphold warrantless surveillance, it also legitimizes the government's tactics to manufacture terror plots against Americans.
