"ACLU Raises Objections Over Expanded Military and CIA Domestic Spying (1/14/2007)

WASHINGTON - The American Civil Liberties Union today expressed serious concerns about the use of “National Security Letters” by the Department of Defense and the CIA to collect the financial records of American citizens and called on Congress to launch an immediate investigation.

The following may be attributed to Caroline Fredrickson, Director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office:

"This country has a long tradition of rejecting the use of the CIA and the Pentagon to spy on Americans, and rightfully so. Today’s published report that the Pentagon and CIA have been relying on “National Security Letters” to collect the financial records of Americans without judicial supervision or Congressional oversight raises a host of questions that need to be answered. What is the legal basis for the government’s action? What safeguards are in place to protect basic privacy rights? How often have the Pentagon and CIA used this claimed authority, based on what criteria, and was compliance truly “voluntary” or effectively coerced?

“We call on Congress to investigate these issues immediately, especially in light of previous revelations that the Pentagon compiled anti-terrorism dossiers on domestic organizations that had done nothing more than peacefully exercise their constitutional right to protest."

I sincerely suggest you make use of that one to let your legislators' know that you're still concerned (I did). If we don't, they'll lay down on it due to an apparent lack of concern on our part. Pete

I didn't realize what shackles the U.S. Army had around its feet until I got to America and learned about our self-defeating, self-destructing groups such as the ACLU, who do not realize the value of our great military and the importance of supporting it in every way.

Those Americans who actually have things to discuss with terrorist groups whose goal is to attack our country need to be watched and investigated.

Seems to me our military people are in much more danger from their own sorry government leaders than the ACLU.

After all, the government is the organization that

(a) sent them there to die

(b ) want to send more of them there to die

For what, Susan? IMO, the entire population of Iraq isn't worth the spilling of one drop of American blood.

Had they really been involved in the 9/11 attack, they could have been suitably destroyed via bombing of the entire country's infrastructure by naval and air forces (all their ports, their electrical grid, all their rail lines, all their oil fields, airports, etc. - bombed into rubble).

Our naval and air forces could have completed that mission with no sweat and sailed/flown back home, leaving the Iraqi's to dig themselves out of the rubble.

That one "example" would have done more to deter future terrorism than anything that has been done before or since - and with no massive amount of American life, no life-sucking drain on the American budget and no out-of-control, Constitution-destroying actions by our own government against us.

Let me know when you figure out that Iraq is not about fighting "terrorism", or saving the poor Iraqi people from Hussein, or blessing them with the chance for "democracy". Pete
