Surveillance Reform Is a Must for PATRIOT Act Reauthorization

Congress is preparing to reauthorize the PATRIOT Act within the next couple of weeks, a wide reaching law that was hastily crafted without much regard for the long-term implications.

Jeb Bush is wrong about the NSA's unconstitutional domestic spying program

There's no indication that the National Security Agency's unconstitutional domestic spying efforts have thwarted an actual terrorist plot inside the United States.
