If Senator Feinstein Only Cared About My Privacy Too, That Would Be So Nice

Senator Dianne Feinstein made a speech on the Senate floor yesterday that ought to put wheels in motion to make CIA head Brennan worry about spending prison time.  But her pugnacious, blind-eyed, and pigheaded defense of the NSA over the last nine months diminishes the moral authority of her accusatory speech.  She seemed nonchalant about other people’s Fourth Amendment rights, but suddenly got very touchy about her own.

It would be fabulous if she as well as John Brennan and Mike Rogers (House Intelligence chairman) and President Obama would realize that they ultimately have no place to hide from our scrutiny of their transparently self-serving utterances, and that they will be judged mercilessly if they do not act as public servants rather than privileged mandarin rulers.
