Electronic Frontier Foundation Sues NSA, DOJ Over Secret Surveillance Program

In our opinion, the only thing Edward Snowden should return to in this country is a ticker-tape parade.  As far as those responsible for the surveillance of American citizens -- and their defenders in Congress -- they should be prosecuted for criminal disregard of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  

During the lifetime of many of us, we condemned the captive nations of the Soviet bloc for their disregard of human rights, for domestic spying, for police-state tactics and control, and for using the instruments of government to persecute political enemies.  Have we now become that which we opposed for more than half a century?  

It's time to refresh the tree of liberty.
