    But beware -- the other side of the paranoia coin is psychosis.

    No matter the colourful rhetoric, this is -- or, at least, ought to become -- an historic letter that deserves to be appended, formally, to the report recently filed by Obama's NSA review committee. I dare to propose that, should Obama choose to entirely overlook the blast from these five whistle-blowers, then the signatories should try to arrange and film for broadcast a mock WH discussion with an actor assigned to impersonate the President and say what, as one might fairly assume on the basis of both presidential and NSA claims made in the past, a cowed, recalcitrant, and even evasive Obama would be saying in the event of any such actual discussion. In my judgement, the public needs to hear these five adversarial voices in 'real' debate.
