Political Outrage

Thursday, May 11, 2006
In the news today are the following articles:

This article reveals that the NSA has denied security clearance to Justice Department investigators and lawyers who were seeking information on the “Domestic Spying Program” (or “Terrorist Surveillance Program”) - which was run by the NSA – thereby killing an inquiry into the program.

This article details the revelation that the NSA has been collecting a huge database of phone calls made by American citizens to American citizen.

Then there's this article on CNN, where the President - working on his credibility - is quoted with the following gem:
"Our efforts are focused on links to al Qaeda and their known affiliates.... [t]he privacy of ordinary Americans is fiercely protected in all our activities."
I'll spare y'all my commentary at this point, but feel free to write your write your Senator if any of this bothers you...
