❄ REPERTORIAL EXPOSÉS & ACLU ASSESSMENT
Im pleased that the story of Administration black site prisons abroad and prisoner renditions was broken by a Washington Post reporter who is a graduate of the Politics department in which I have taught most of the last 40 years. [See Note 1]
Now the scene shifts to The New York Times, which has exposed National Security Agency surveillance practices many consider illegal. [See Note 2] The ACLU has issued a concise statement summarizing why the NSAs practices matter [See Note 3].
