To the Netrooters

[posted by Callimachus]

Auteurs of outrage, howling at everything from hangnails to warfare. I'm afraid you've become an echo chamber of boys who cried wolf. Go ahead and crank up the machine over this one:

The Bush administration has approved a plan to expand domestic access to some of the most powerful tools of 21st-century spycraft, giving law enforcement officials and others the ability to view data obtained from satellite and aircraft sensors that can see through cloud cover and even penetrate buildings and underground bunkers.

But I'm afraid it will have to be sane conservatives who sound the alarm that's going to be heard. Let's hope they're up to the task. Someone had better be.
