On the subject of intelligence …

Relating to friday’s discussion of the role of espionage in our daily lives, take a look at this article from the New York Times. It makes some useful points about the successes and limitations of electronic intelligence gathering, and lays out some consequences for foreign policy that we didn’t consider.

I urge you to read to the end and to consider the implications of the phrase “turnkey totalitarianism.”

Enjoy your weekend.
