wait and see

9/11 demonstrated that we need some vast improvements in our intelligence system. I can't argue with that fact. So, more than three years later, we get this. It looks okay on paper, and if passes, Congress can mop its sweaty brow and start congratulating itself for doing SOMETHING.

But I still wonder: How long before this Intelligence Bill is used to go after people who have nothing to do with terrorism? If a way exists to pervert this law and apply it simply to further harass an already harassed citizenry, somebody will find it and use it. Mark my word.

Just name ONE such law that WAS NOT perverted that way in the past.
