We continue on today with our discussions about the Bill of Rights, our Constitution, and why the interpretation of our rights aren’t always clear. We try to answer questions on what our rights are to information about our government programs that are designed to “protect” us from threat, and what happens to individuals who release information concerning those programs the government doesn’t want you to know about. Links and information on some of the people and topics mentioned yesterday in our discussions are provided for you in our posts.
“John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman, made the following comments in an official statement on the day the report was released: “This report, mandated by Congress last year, documents what many of us in Congress concluded long ago: President Bush’s warrantless surveillance program was illegal from the beginning, and of questionable value. It clearly violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which regulates domestic surveillance for intelligence purposes, and was based on legal analysis that was ‘factually flawed’…. The refusal of key Bush administration officials such as David Addington and John Yoo to cooperate with the IGs’ review underscores the need for an independent commission with subpoena power to further review these issues, as I have called for.”“
