Congressman Mike Pompeo and constitutional lawyer David B. Rivkin, Jr., have an OpEd in the Wall Street Journal today. Let me cut to their point:
Congress should pass a law re-establishing collection of all metadata, and combining it with publicly available financial and lifestyle information into a comprehensive, searchable database. Legal and bureaucratic impediments to surveillance should be removed. That includes Presidential Policy Directive-28, which bestows privacy rights on foreigners and imposes burdensome requirements to justify data collection.
I’m kind of wishing that was The Onion and not the WSJ.
