The Government is Tracking You

The Wall Street Journal is reporting on the disclosure of an order of the United States' secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The order requires Verizon to give "all call detail records" of all its customers to the government.  Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director for the ACLU says, "It's analogous to the FBI stationing an agent outside of every home in the country to track who goes in and who comes out. It provides further evidence of the extent to which basic democratic rights are being surrendered in secret to the demands of unaccountable intelligence agencies."
