The Pentagon is now spying on US citizens

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Big story in Sunday's Washington Post. Democratic Veteran blog has the coverage.

Gotta love the quote at the end of the blog entry:

"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

Hermann Goering, Hitler's Reich-Marshall at the Nuremberg Trials
