On Patriot at the Prospect

March 3rd, 2010 · 4 Comments

I’ve got a longish piece over at The American Prospect that looks at how the Obama administration worked to kill the National Security Letter reforms that Obama once campaigned on—and even borrowed a page from Bush by retroactively reinterpreting the law to excuse systematic illegal surveillance.

The Great Debate

December 3rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

Anyone in the DC area who’s interested enough in privacy and surveillance to put up with this blog really ought to come down to the Cato Institute at 4 this afternoon for our PATRIOT Act reauthorization debate, where I’ll join forces with CDT’s Greg Nojeim against Deceptacons Jena Baker McNeil of Heritage and Richard Samp […]

October 23rd, 2009 · 5 Comments

A Best (Last?) Shot at PATRIOT Act Reform

September 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

It’s not getting a lot of pickup, but this Thursday’s markup in the Senate Judiciary Committee really could be the single most significant privacy and surveillance event of the Obama administration. There has to be a vote on the renewal of expiring PATRIOT Act provisions.  Thursday will determine whether the renewal legislation is in the […]

September 8th, 2009 · 6 Comments

And not even resting that much, but as I noted earlier, expect to see a good deal more of my blogging over at Cato@Liberty these days. Here’s a long one on the recent call for more regulation of behavioral ads—which, believe it or not, I only mostly disagree with.
