Tim Ferris interviews Daniel Elsberg about FISA


FISA, the amendment which will allow the American government to conduct warrantless wiretaps on its own citizens, is scheduled for approval this Tuesday. In the video below, Tim Ferris, the author of the “Four Hour Work Week“, interviews Daniel Ellsberg, who exposed the Pentagon Papers and was a key figure in both ending the Vietnam War and bringing down Richard Nixon. Watch the video and find out just how the privacy and freedom of American citizens is being frittered away in order to chase terrorist boogeymen.
