Alito dissented in case protecting civil rights

Excellent point and thanks

Excellent point and thanks for the link. If core rights grounded in explicit constitutional provisions are to be handled as blithely as Judge Alito brushed aside Fourth Amendment concerns in this case, one wonders what rights at all are apt to remain truly secure. If Alito would authorize expansive, vague use of police power in violation of the constitution to facilitate the government's controversial and unsuccessful drug war, what limits, if any, is he likely to place on the state as it continues to prosecute the war on terror?
