Spying on the Home Front

After the 'Gilmore Girls' finale tonight, here's something else to tune in to... PBS' Frontline will be airing a new documentary called "Spying on the Home" at 9pm EST. It's about the ways that the government has expanded its surveillance powers in the post-9/11 world.

The commercial, via YouTube. You can watch it later for free on PBS' website if you miss it.

[UPDATE: Former Deputy AG James Comey confirms that John Ashcroft (!) tried to shut down the program in 2004, but Alberto Gonzales and Andrew Card interceded to save it.]
