I suspect history will look back on the Suleimani assassination as the moment the US lost the long war in Iraq. The political consequences will cost the government far more presence in the region than any Iranian response. t.co/zN4sY7TWfN

"I GENERALLY CARE relatively little for the personal lives of people of note, but something that always nagged me just slightly about Edward Snowden’s 2013 revelations that the NSA was spying on pretty much everyone was — how angry was his girlfriend?" t.co/ASXuEbFb6U

With the hubris of a man who had looked long at the screen, I thought I had seen it all. I was wrong. t.co/2vfvVPm73R

Start the year off right: join the 20,000 who have already signed to oppose the US government's indefinite detention of Chelsea Manning -- a situation the United Nations' Rapporteur has just found legally equivalent to torture. t.co/6dYKZekXDc

“Nearly every other legal system in the world condemns coercive confinement, and long ago replaced secret grand juries with public hearings... even knowing I am very likely to stay in jail for an even longer time, I’m never backing down.” t.co/8DBnxFHdxh

Whoever you are, whatever your values, recognize the historic importance of this: it is second time the US government's retaliation against *the same whistleblower* has been found equivalent to torture. Telling the truth has become the greatest of crimes. t.co/Aq9dlz25FO

À Noël, pensez à faire un don de dernière minute à @4TheRefugees. Je prie pour que le gouvernement du Canada réunisse les familles qui m'ont protégé et met enfin fin aux menaces contre elles. Link: t.co/NFs9gmQSOM Story: t.co/2NgGZ54tCs

Citizens would rise up in outrage if the government mandated that every person carry a tracking device revealing their location and identity 24 hours a day. Yet in the last decade we have become, app by app, subject to just such a system. t.co/7BKn9VMTzW

Your smartphone broadcasts your exact location thousands of times per day to dozens of different companies. Each has the power to follow individuals wherever they go, in near-real time.

That’s not a glitch in the system. It is the system.

It is a federal crime to open a piece of junk mail addressed to someone else. Listening to a phone call without a court order can also be a federal crime.

But an increasing number of companies are warrantlessly tracking—and recording—your every movement. t.co/2D8ttMKIWD

Even at protests, your phone is emitting a beacon, one that’s invisible to the human eye. This signal is captured and collected, sometimes many times per minute, and keeps broadcasting long after the protesters head to their homes and take off their masks. t.co/Oexxyfidqh

It's *snow secret* you tortured Gul Rahman for weeks at a black site, then chained him naked to a concrete floor until he died in the near-winter cold.

It's *snow secret* that today's CIA Director, Gina Haspel, was then the head of a related torture site.

Absent sweeping reform, this is the whole world in ten years. Remember: both parties in the US defend mass surveillance programs. China's "advantage" here is not technological, but that there's no strong civil opposition to slow the descent into nightmare. t.co/uhcrcRpMLL
