  1. Why am I not entirely convinced that even if Congress prohibits the use of this Orwellian scheme on American citizens, there won’t be somebody in the government who will disobey that prohibition, especially given that Poindexter is the captain of this little ship.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I would really prefer my government not to employ people who lie to my elected representatives (and by extension, to me), regardless of whether or not they had immunity from prosecution at the time. Doubly so when they head a program that makes a mockery of my constitutional rights.
