The Criminal NSA

HT: Egalicontrarian As JDB put it, "legal experts Jennifer Granick and Christopher Sprigman have written this helpful opinion piece in the NYT,"  The Criminal NSA.  Their conclusion:

We may never know all the details of the mass surveillance programs, but we know this: The administration has justified them through abuse of language, intentional evasion of statutory protections, secret, unreviewable investigative procedures and constitutional arguments that make a mockery of the government’s professed concern with protecting Americans’ privacy. It’s time to call the N.S.A.’s mass surveillance programs what they are: criminal.
