Attorney General blasted for wanting to ‘kill’ Miranda rights

http://rawstory.com

Justice delayed is justice denied: Attorney General Eric Holder says that the U.S. needs to examine whether the current rules regarding Miranda warnings give law enforcement agents the “necessary flexibility” when dealing with terrorism cases, suggesting that regulators consider a longer delay before American citizens must be read their rights. “If we are going to have a system that is capable of dealing, in a public safety context, with this new threat, I think we have to give serious consideration to at least modifying that public safety exception.”

die as a result of the influence of the Pro Israeli Lobby

Security Expert Bruce Schneier responds to TSA Security Theater

http://www.cnn.com

Famous security expert Bruce Schneier responds to the TSA's recently-implemented security theater measures. Bruce knows real security comes from openness and freedom - not privacy invasion and cameras. From the article:
"A terrorist attack cannot possibly destroy a country's way of life; it's only our reaction to that attack that can do that kind of damage. The more we undermine our own laws, the more we convert our buildings into fortresses, the more we reduce the freedoms and liberties at the foundation of our societies, the more we're doing the terrorists' job for them."
