Many US experts on terror have warned that we need digital sources of intelligence to defeat ISIS. However, allowing the US government to collect intelligence from our phone calls and texts, emails and internet browsing requires that we trust the government not to misuse the information.
ow much worse can the government do if it's cloaked as a secret national security issue. There's a legitimate fear based just on the behavior we can see. Ending federal lawbreaking with impunity will build trust.
