This is from the March 5, 2004 program of Bill Moyers NOW.
Here's the directory where movies of the show are located. I have it as a complete "all" file and in three parts (title "1of3" etc.).
There's also a nice little history lesson which explains how, after J. Edgar Hoover infringed upon so many civil rights in the 50s and 60s, legislation was passed in the 70s (headed up by Walter Mondale) that restricted using undercover operations for the investigation of criminal activity.
Ashcroft re-wrote those rules after 911. It shows footage demonstrating that even Republicans like Representative James Sensenbrenner (Chair of the Judiciary Committee) say the new rules go too far in restricting our civil liberties.Posted by Lisa at March 06, 2004 12:53 PM | TrackBack
