Judge Posner speaks

The brilliant Judge Richard Posner, author of the book Preventing Surprise Attacks (among many other outstanding works), takes to the pages of the Washington Post to argue that the NSA surveillance program is no serious threat to our civil liberties. Moreover, according to Posner, the NSA program is part of an attempt to fill gaps in our defenses against domestic terrorism. Posner finds it “no surprise that gaps in domestic intelligence are being filled by ad hoc initiatives.” I would argue that after September 11, the administration would have been criminally negligent had it not sought to do so.
