Big Brother in the flesh

Ars has a good short synopsis of today's revelations about the NSA domestic wiretap story: TIA (aka Topsail) unveiled: the real scope of the NSA's domestic spying program

Think about that for a moment: the program is secret, and there is no judicial or congressional oversight (as of today, there's not even any executive branch oversight from the Justice Department), so the national security establishment has arrogated to itself carte blanche to snoop your phone activity and possibly to detain you indefinitely without a warrant based on what they find.
Holy F---ing S--t Batman.
