Thursday Open Thread
Lots of off-line activity for me today means an open thread for you. In the news today.
- The New York Police Department planted spies at protests and videotaped protesters.
- FISA Court judges will get a briefing on what the Administration has been doing.
Several members of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court said in interviews that they want to know why the administration believed secretly listening in on telephone calls and reading e-mails of U.S. citizens without court authorization was legal. Some of the judges said they are particularly concerned that information gleaned from the president's eavesdropping program may have been improperly used to gain authorized wiretaps from their court.
