Of all the scandals bedeviling the Obama administration, the data mining scandal seems to be the one with “legs.” Why wouldn’t it? We now know that Uncle Sam knows which porn sites we frequent. Personally, I’m more freaked out by the fact that the feds think that data mining is an effective anti-terrorist strategy. Hello? Human intelligence is, was and always will be our best defense against bad guys. (Check out this British intelligence failure.) Never mind. Despite concerns about feds outing fetishists, the majority of the American public is OK with electronic surveillance. They like the bloodlessness of data mining and drones. The want to be One Nation Under Cops. And they sure don’t want to think about carrying a gun or personally confronting a bad guy. This collective wimpiness is a cancer eating away at our liberty. Am I wrong?
