[politics] I'll take "Black Helicopters" for $200, Alex

What is "domestic surveillance with no oversight"?
WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- The Defense Department has expanded programs aimed at gathering and analyzing intelligence within the United States, it was reported Sunday. The moves create new agencies, add personnel and seek additional legal authority for domestic security activities in the post-9/11 world, the Washington Post said. The White House is reported considering expanding the power of a little-known, three-year-old Pentagon agency called the Counterintelligence Field Activity, or CIFA. In addition to coordinating Pentagon security efforts, CIFA would have authority to investigate crimes within the United States such as treason, foreign or terrorist sabotage or even economic espionage.
Coz' you know - 9/11 changed everything, including turning the Constitution into toilet paper. Don't you feel safer now? I stumbled across this on UPI this AM; Atrios links to Democratic Veteran, who links to the WaPo article in question.
