Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

Failing the Nazi Test

Ryan Singel responds to law professor Walter F. Murphy's claim:

Woe be it for this blog to defend the country's foolish watchlist system, but after having spent more than four years reporting on watchlists, filing Freedom of Information Act requests, and talking with persons flagged by the lists, I have never seen a single case of a person being put on the list for activities protected by the First Amendment. Feel free to drop any proof you might have via email or in the comments.
I'm open to any evidence that the government has watchlisted American citizens for exercising their Constitutional rights, but I've never seen it.

Not one? But what about the crushing jackboot of Bushitler's minions?
