This is utterly chilling. What on earth is going on with our country? Secret courts, secret gag orders, secret spying on american citizens - and whistleblowers getting labeled as spies and enemies, while they flee to Russia?!.
This is like something out of a Cory Doctorow novel. I feel like any second now another story will hit the news about a team of 13 year olds that used their xboxes to build a distributed, open version of Lavabit and SecretCircle's private messaging services. Then the 13 year olds are labeled as terrorits and hauled off to secret prison, where they secretly whither away out of sight from the herd.
Quite honestly it's shocking but not that surprising. Nevertheless it does sadden me.
