No.

Glennzilla describes the disgrace that the Obama White House belched forth today:

[B]eyond even the outrageously broad "state secrets" privilege invented by the Bush administration and now embraced fully by the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ has now invented a brand new claim of government immunity, one which literally asserts that the U.S. Government is free to intercept all of your communications (calls, emails and the like) and -- even if what they're doing is blatantly illegal and they know it's illegal -- you are barred from suing them unless they "willfully disclose" to the public what they have learned.
There is no excuse for this. It is all the more shameful because Barack Obama and Joe Biden know better than this.

There isn't enough charm, charisma, or rhetorical grace in the world to make this acceptable.
