(WASHINGTON) Citing an obscure clause in the Patriot Act, officials today announced the initiation of a probe against fifteen members of different Internet message boards and social networks aimed at “exposing and halting those who perpetrate controversial conspiracy website postings." Calling the move “an outrage” and “a direct frontal assault on free speech,” an ACLU spokesperson claimed the organization was willing to come to the assistance of all the individuals targeted in the probe.
A DHS press release defended the move, stating: “The outrageous fear-mongering that characterizes much of Internet discourse today has got to stop. By making examples of some of the most egregious cases, we are drawing a line in the sand.”
