ACLU withdraws Patriot Act suit

Buried in the bottom-left corner of page A-10 of today's Washington Post was the news that the ACLU had withdrawn its lawsuit over the Patriot Act due to "improvements in the law".

Naturally, the American Commies and Libertine Union is claiming victory:
"While the reauthorized Patriot Act is far from perfect, we succeeded in stemming the damage from some of the Bush administration's most reckless policies," Ann Beeson, the New York-based associate legal director of the ACLU, said in a written statement.
