Patriot Act Being Used to Crack Down on Wikileak’s Supporter

• PoliTeching
U.S. government is using Patriot Act to get Twitter to hand over some Wikileaks supporter’s individual account information, private messages, ip addresses etc. [...] This does not bode well for freedom of speech. If prominent people are being harassed like this, people might have second thought about criticizing their government. Or suffer constant harassment and interrogation in the airport. So much for land of the free.

Give the Government an inch and they'll take a yard - give them a tool and they'll abuse it.  They have demonstrated their willingness and ability to do this for over a hundred years.
