“The problem with T.S.A. stopping and searching people in public places outside the airport is that there are no real legal standards, or probable cause,” said Khaliah Barnes, administrative law counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington. “It’s something that is easily abused because the reason that they are conducting the stops is shrouded in secrecy.”

T.S.A. officials respond that the random searches are “special needs” or “administrative searches” that are exempt from probable cause because they further the government’s need to prevent terrorist attacks.
Yay.

Greenwald: Is U.S. Exaggerating Threat to Embassies to Silence Critics of NSA Domestic Surveillance?

Video

Greenwald is spot on. This latest terror threat looks to be a staged covering action. MHG

Pretty shocking -- but are Americans too dumbed down to care?

British storm troops invade Guardian office == destroy computers

Clearly the Brits were acting on orders from Obama.

Typical Gaffney hyperbole because the truth wasn't dramatic enough for our resident conspiracy nut.

The actual headline and facts from the mouth of the Guardian's editor:

Quote:
Guardian Editor: U.K. 'Security Experts' Entered Offices And Oversaw Destruction Of Hard Drives

CLARIFICATION:
The headline on this story has been updated to reflect that U.K. "security experts" who entered the Guardian offices oversaw the destruction of hard drives by employees of the publication (even "pointing out the critical points on circuit boards to attack," according to the paper), but they did not necessarily perform the work themselves.

The paper agreed to destroy the hard drives to avoid potentially onerous legal action against The Guardian by the U.K. government, and to prevent intelligence officials from confiscating the data for themselves.

No, just the headline.

The UK's anti terrorism laws are even more intrusive than those in the US, so it comes as no surprise they wanted the intelligence destroyed.

However, the Guardian's management saw that move coming as it was negotiated to prevent legal action, so a copy of those hard drives was possibly made some time ago.

The game goes on.
