TIPS getting tapped out
The noxious spy-on-your-neighbor TIPS program appears to be slithering off to die unmourned in a forgotten corner. At least one hopes so.
“As far as I can see, the TIPS idea is nothing but a big PR operation to make it look like the Justice Department is doing something significant to attack terrorism,”
The Bush Administration has tried to gain support by promising that private homes will be off limits to snooping. But it may be too late. Congressional leaders in both parties are backing legislation to stop TIPS in its tracks.
We all need to make sure this program gets dead and stays dead. And conservatives were as equally outraged by TIPS as lefties.
Hey, maybe Dubya IS bringing the country together after all!
