Daniel Ellsberg on FISA...Only Fascists Will Vote For It
(Tim Ferriss, July 7, 2008)
Tomorrow, July 8th, could mark the beginning of official condoning of warrantless surveillance of law-abiding citizens in the US, not to mention foreign nationals. I am not an alarmist and believe in qualified surveillance with process — this is different. I’ve done the homework. . . . The above [CLICK LINK] is an 18-minute interview that I just finished with Daniel Ellsberg, famous for releasing the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times in 1971. His actions are often credited with helping end not only the Nixon presidency but also the Vietnam War. . . . In the video above, I interview Ellsberg to learn what every American needs to know — and do in the next 24 hours — about the new FISA (Foreign Information and Surveillance Act) amendments. The interview, and below partial transcription, answers questions like ... I don’t have anything to hide. How does this affect me? ... What if this type of surveillance is what has prevented another 9/11 from happening? ...What are common inaccuracies about FISA reported in the media?
