“There is a little-known codicil…which gives the dean unlimited power to preserve order in the event of campus emergency.”

It seems that double-secret probation is also in force in America today. The ACLU has made a Freedom of Information Act request to Attorney General Holder for information concerning the secret interpretation of section 215 of the Patriot Act on the part of the Obama administration. This request has been bolstered by a letter sent by Representatives Mark Udall and Ron Wyden in support of the request:

“We believe most Americans would be stunned to learn the details of how these secret court opinions have interpreted section 215 of the Patriot Act. As we see it, there is now a significant gap between what most Americans think the law allows and what the government secretly claims the law allows. This is a problem, because it is impossible to have an informed public debate about what the law should say when the public doesn’t know what its government thinks the law says.”

Dean Wormer…er, uh, President Obama needs to get a firm grip on his intelligence services. The Blutarskies and Hoovers of the world are going to get that information, and the electorate (the electorate, Mr. Obama) will discover just how far up the public ass the Patriot Act is being jammed.
