June 6, 2013

Blogger Marcy Wheeler explained the meaning of the NSA’s mass surveillance of Verizon phone customers, why the NSA’s monitoring focuses on Americans, the problem with data mining in terrorism investigations, why it is alarmingly easy to become a terrorism suspect and why the programs secrecy is aimed at Americans asserting their civil liberties.

On The Better Half: Jeremy Schahill schools Toure,  the Grand Bargain maybe mercifully dead, The IMF admits that it damaged the Greek economy with austerity, Random Rush, George W Bush bikes with vetrans of his wars and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
