I just read an article on Ars Technica, a cool little technology/computer/etc. blog I read for work.
And frankly, it’s very scary stuff. Dick Cheney spoke at a Heritage Foundation meeting…the article reads:
“During his speech, Cheney endorsed proposals to expand the scope of warrantless electronic surveillance, called for such programs to be made permanent, and advocated granting retroactive legal immunity to telecommunications service providers that were complicit in potentially illegal government wiretapping activities. “
Think about this for a second….a minute….half an hour, or more.
