The week in review

Last week was pretty busy. There was the Senate Bill that may restrict freedom of the press:

"The bill would make it a crime to tell the American people that the president is breaking the law, and the bill could make it a crime for the newspapers to publish that fact," said Martin, a civil liberties advocate.

There was also an example of what this senate bill may be trying to avoid, as the Chicago Tribune discovered the identities of 2600+ CIA employees (some were even covert operatives), 17 aircraft, a couple dozen facilities’ locations, and of course phone numbers. How did they find out this juicy information, you ask? The Internet, of course. (Use Bugmenot.com for registration info.)

"At a minimum, the CIA’s seeming inability to keep its own secrets invites questions about whether the Bush administration is doing enough to shield its covert CIA operations from public scrutiny…"

And of course the US is in danger of edging towards dictatorship
