Mr. Obvious Says: National Defense Trumps Animal Rights

As well it should be: Court sides with Navy in dispute over sonar and whales:

The Supreme Court on Wednesday lifted sanctions placed on the Navy over its underwater sonar testing, a setback for environmental groups that claimed the warfare technology was harming whales and other marine mammals.

At issue in the 5-4 ruling was whether the Navy’s need to conduct exercises to protect the country from enemy submarines outweighed concerns raised by environmental groups.

Of course, Obama could change all that with a few SCOTUS appointments.
