More Spookery

One defense of the NSA mess that appears to be quite popular is to assert that it's all legal.  Sure, laws were passed, but legality does not make it right.  Don't forget we did have a Civil War to correct a bit of legality called slavery.  We also decided it was legal to disenfranchise women but it was not right.  Have we forgotten about the Civil Rights Act?  The Voting Rights Act?

Our freedom and liberty depend on law that does not infringe on our rights.   We need to have a long, candid, public discourse about who, what, why, how and effects of the NSA, CIA, FBI and every other intelligence agency workings.  They do things in our name, what do they do?
