"Dr. Rusty Shackleford" at the The Jawa Report on FISA:
Look, I have some personal knowledge about just how bad the current FISA legislation is. This new bill gives law enforcement some much needed tools. Simply extending the current bill is not going to cut it.
I can’t say anymore than that, but you idiots who think that there is some government conspiracy to use counter-terror measures as a pretense to thwart your civil liberties are just that: idiots. If anything, even the proposed FISA replacement law doesn’t go far enough.
How wise of the NSA to secretly brief a blogger named after a cartoon character who writes on a Star Wars inspired site. That kind of forward thinking would have been laughed at pre-9/11 when the Trekkies were in charge…
