    The ACLU has published a new report on post-9/11 civil liberties violations:

    A Call to Courage: Reclaiming Our Liberties Ten Years After 9/11

    I haven't read it yet, but their summary sounds like it's thorough and covers surveillance, data, secrecy and the "double interpretation of the Patriot Act" issue, as well as racial discrimination.

    I skimmed through it, to be honest it's a recap of what people on this site and others have been saying for a long time, basically that the government has become unmoored from law, and that not only is this a bad thing for rights, it's also a bad thing for security.
