Marcy Wheeler On Government Spying

The inimitable Marcy Wheeler (emptywheel), writing for The Nation, examines "Government Spying: Why You Can't 'Just Trust Us'". Indeed, you can't, and shouldn't. Wheeler examines the almost nonexistent results of spying in preventing terrorist acts since the programs began in the mid-2000s, and argues for repealing the secret laws that make secret broad-brush surveillance of American citizens available to the three-letter agencies. IMHO, this post is worth your time to read.
