A message from Demandprogress.org: Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall have been blowing the whistle:
Law enforcement is using a secret interpretation of the PATRIOT Act to spy on people who aren't connected with terrorism.
The FBI operates under a cloak of secrecy, so we only know about this because these two courageous senators are defying the intelligence agencies and speaking out.
Will you click here to email the Department of Justice and ask Attorney General Eric Holder to come clean about the secret spying program?
Here's the New York Times:
Mr. Wyden and Mr. Udall have for months been raising concerns that the government has secretly interpreted a part of the Patriot Act in a way that they portray as twisted, allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to conduct some kind of unspecified domestic surveillance that they say does not dovetail with a plain reading of the statute.
Wyden and Udall deserve our vigorous support -- we know how unusual it is for politicians to take a strong stand in support of civil liberties. We need to encourage them -- and others -- to carry this torch.
They just wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that he come clean -- will you click here to join them?
Thanks for fighting for our freedoms.
