That Freedom Thingie

by eriposte

Jack Balkin:

My friend Sandy Levinson has pointed out that under the new Iraqi Constitution passed with the blessing of the Bush Administration, the NSA spying program would be unconstitutional. Article 38 provides:

The freedom of communication, and mail, telegraphic, electronic, and telephonic correspondence, and other correspondence shall be guaranteed and may not be monitored, wiretapped or disclosed except for legal and security necessity and by a judicial decision.

Well, it looks like we are bringing freedom to Iraq. Now if we could only get some of that freedom here in the United States.

Sorry, Jack, didn't you hear Bush is exporting freedom?

It's so easy when you can be a dictator.
