The Cookie Jar

The government must victimize us to prevent us from being victimized by foreign agents. Sure.

FBI pried open the cookie jar of NSA data during the 9-11 frenzy and they are not going to allow the lid to be put back on willingly.

Or, as required by the law, or anything else, apparently.

And, neither will Congress.

So much for upholding the spirit, intent and indeed letter of the law and our Constitution.

It's best not to think this episode through to it's logical conclusion.
