New and NOT improved FISA must be stopped

As explained by the inimitable Chris Hedges.

The monitoring of suspected terrorists, with proper oversight, is a
crucial part of our national security. But this law is not about
keeping us safe, which can -- and should -- be done in a constitutional
manner and with judicial oversight. It is about using terrorism as a
pretext to permit wholesale spying and to silence voices that will
allow us to maintain an open society.
