    On a decades old Supreme Court case that had extremely different facts than the current case.

    I am with you one hundred percent when you say we need to be reality based, and not to hurt credibility by overstating facts.  But I think you're going too far in the other direction to say that this program was legal and constitutional, period.  I'd say that its legality and constitutionality are very much in doubt - I hope we get a new Supreme Court case to resolve these questions (although with the current court's composition, I'm somewhat afraid of the answer we'll get).
