that dianne feinstein is issuing broadsides against cia hacking is truly remarkable. no member of the senate has been as enthusiastic for secrecy, surveillance, and in general the national security state. for god's sake she had better let this make her think again about the whole kit and kaboodle, for this is happening to all of us. one thing i would certainly infer from the clarity and directness of feinstein's attack: she is clean: no affairs, addiction, tax evasion, significant campaign finance violations, delinquent children, embarassing internet searches or diseases. otherwise she would have been silenced. the idea that the intelligence services (or, as i prefer to think of them, syndicates) are subject to the oversight of anything or anyone is obviously ridiculous. they are the overseers.
