Bush Memo Reveals Desire to Squash 1st Amendment Rights in the name of Fighting Terrorism

This is for all of you conservatives out there who are whining about how Obama is taking your personal freedoms.

Newsweek reveals a secret Bush Administration memo in which lawyers discuss, among other things, repealing first amendment freedom of press rights in the name of fighting terrorism. While these measures were never acted upon, the article notes that this memo paved the way for the torture memos and the domestic surveillance program.

You can read the memo here.
