Coverage on the Patriot Act Hearings

By: Harry Waisbren

I live-tweeted on @GetFISARight during Tuesday’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties hearing on the USA PATRIOT Act.

The tweets are saved here on our wiki, and I’ll be back at it tomorrow for the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing “Reathorizing the USA PATRIOT Act: Ensuring Liberty and Security”. Definitely say hi if you’re watching or paying attention to the feed (and if you do, we’re focusing our attention on the #patriotact tag).

There is a lot going on very quickly, so if you come by a relevant article/blog post it’d be a big help if you can relay the link to us in the comments or to @GetFISARight. We could use these links for our news roundup posts especially, which we’ll be making for these hearings and more as we progress.
