Seems like all the good reporting these days is coming from the other side of the pond, with Glenn Greenwald leading the charge. He rightly makes the key point about Edward Snowden being charged with espionage, that the terrorists and Chinese and Russians all knew we were monitoring them, and the only ones who didn't were the American people. So it it espionage to inform the American people that their own government is secretly monitoring them???

Watch NSA officials repeatedly deny over the last year that they are collecting information on all US citizens.  From Forbes.
Great idea from Rand Paul and Pat Leahy to limit mandatory minimums for all federal crimes.  This could go a long way towards restricting prosecutorial overreach.  And letting judges judge, what a crazy idea.
