I am out of time for blogging and heading out for a long trip across an ocean and a continent, so I’m just going to post a number of links here without commentary. I’m hopeful the change we’ve seen in a number of lawmakers and the general attitude of the public continues to grow and that we see real, long term change. I may be overly optimistic, but it’s better than succumbing to the malaise.
- In its Bubble of Secrecy, the National Security Bureaucracy Redefined Privacy for its Own Purposes
- European Commission demands answers about PRISM data requests
- Unwarranted hysteria over Verizon data collection – Unwarranted? Was that a bad pun, or just bad writing?
- NSA revelations only “the tip of the iceberg” says Dem lawmaker
- The Secret War – No, this is not a bad 90’s comic book series by Marvel
- Udall, Wyden Call On National Security Agency Director to Clarify Comments on Effectiveness of Phone Data Collection Program
- FISA Court Rejects Catch-22 Secrecy Argument in FOIA Case
- Secret Court Ruling Put Tech Companies in Data Bind
- What About the Fact that Terrorists Want to Murder Us All? – What about the fact that bathrooms kill more people annually than terrorists ever have?
That’s enough righteous indignation for now. I’m sure there’ll be a whole new set of information and stories that come out while I’m traveling, so expect to see more when I get back home.
