Hi. My law school boyfriend went to a lunchtime presentation on the PATRIOT Act yesterday with the director of the local ACLU and the US Attorney for the District of Vermont. Two interesting things were learned from the attorney. One, the upshot of his discussion was “you people need to trust us. If you don’t trust [FISA] judges, why are you in law school?”. Two, he claims the DoJ only reads the headers of people’s email to look for ne’er-do-wells. This isn’t great news, but it IS news.
