A Guide to the NSA Eavesdropping Debate

The Librarians' Index to the Internet (LII, 2/16/2006)
brings our attention to A Guide to the NSA Eavesdropping Debate,
available on the National Public Radio web site. The site includes
a collection of articles that provide background about
"Senate held hearings Feb. 6 [2006] on the National Security
Agency's domestic wiretapping program." Topics include an overview
of NSA warrantless domestic wiretapping, a timeline of "Wiretaps' Use
and Abuse," and summaries of legal arguments (pro and con) from the
White House and the Congressional Research Service.
