To Eric Holder: Stop Lying About The PATRIOT Act
Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall have been blowing the whistle: Law enforcement is using a secret interpretation of the PATRIOT Act to spy on people who aren't connected with terrorism. The FBI operates under a cloak of secrecy, so we only know about this because these two courageous senators are defying the intelligence agencies and speaking out. Here's the New York Times:
Mr. Wyden and Mr. Udall have for months been raising concerns that the government has secretly interpreted a part of the Patriot Act in a way that they portray as twisted, allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct some kind of unspecified domestic surveillance that they say does not dovetail with a plain reading of the statute.
Wyden and Udall deserve our support. They just wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that he come clean -- will you sign on at right to join them?
PETITION TO ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER: Stop misleading the public. We stand with Senators Wyden and Udall and demand that you come clean about how you're using the PATRTIOT Act.
Just fill out the form at right to sign the petition and send an email to Holder.
Here's Wired's article on what the FBI might be up to.
