Brilliant clause in the Patriot Act makes it illegal to publish news of a challenge to the Patriot Act. I read this last night and it's getting almost no coverage. The ACLU filed a lawsuit 3 weeks ago but the case was sealed to avoid violating secrecy rules contained in the USA Patriot Act.
Is no one scared shitless of this sort of thing except for me? Am I missing something there? A law that makes it a crime to file suit against the law? (at least publicly)
Dan Gillmor did have a post this morning but all of the other blogs I read have made no mention of it.
"...The abuses of liberty just roll along. Now it's deemed illegal even to tell anyone about the abuses...."
