11/07/2005 Archived Entry: "National Security Letters used to create dossier on "enemy journalist""

THIS IS INCREDIBLE. Not at all surprising, but still incredible. Here's how the War on Terrorists crowd are using their national security letters. You know, the constitutionally flaky paperwork that lets them give themselves permission to investigate "terrorists"?

To create a 100-page dossier on a journalist who's been critical of George Bush.

Makes Richard M. Nixon with his pathetic little enemies lists or J. Edgar Hoover with his titillating files of celebrity sexual kinks look like a pair of bargain-basement paranoids.
