The new Homeland Security bill, which ballooned from about 40 to nearly 400 pages after it returned from the conference committee, has a number of time bombs in it that are threats to freedom and privacy. For example, the bill says that you can go to jail for disclosing anything that’s a threat to “critical infrastructure.” What’s critical infrastructure? Who knows. It doesn’t surprise me that the Bush administration, which thinks very little of the public’s need to know anything about what the government is doing, is criminalizing the disclosure of information.
