The US Government has used America's WW-I era Espionage Act of 1917 to prosecute ex-NSA manager Thomas Drake.
Drake whistle-blew on the NSA when he saw the agency was targeting the mass of the American public for surveillance...instead of terrorists.
He is now being prosecuted under the Espionage Act...
The Espionage Act of 1917 was passed under President Woodrow Wilson during WW-I.
So what the government (and the Supreme Court) is saying is that old wartime laws are still valid and applicable.
This is shocking.
By default, does this make President Adams' Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 still valid and applicable?
Are we subject to ancient wartime laws passed in bygone eras?
As far as the US Government is concerned...this seems to be the case.
