Tomorrow, July 8th, could mark the beginning of official condoning of warrantless surveillance of US citizens in the US.
This is a short interview with Daniel Ellsberg, famous for releasing the Pentagon Papers, about what every American needs to know -- and do in the next 24 hours -- about the new FISA (Federal Information and Surveillance Act) amendments.
WHAT YOU CAN DO IN 60 SECONDS:
For those who are prepared to spend 60 seconds to help protect their liberties and prevent warrantless wiretapping from becoming a new standard in the US, here are two steps you can take:
1. ALL AMERICANS: Go to snipurl.com/2ubhq and put in your zipcode to find your Senator's phone number. Call them and read the short script on the same page. If no answer, click the link at the bottom of the page to e-mail them. If the above link doesn't work, go to eff.org, click "take action," and click the first item.
2. OBAMA SUPPORTERS: Go to snipurl.com/2ubhl and invest 30 seconds to become a member of the group Obama watches for numbers that want him to oppose this bill. Recommend others search "obama please vote no" on Google and the MyBarackObama link will be in the top results.
