Let me just hand the mike to Lucky.

Poor, poor Chris Elliott. And while I almost always disagree with him, this time it’s different. I support him. As we all know, the TSA didn’t exactly do a great job making the new security initiatives clear. So in trying to help the public out (for once), Chris Elliott posted the security directive on his website, which wasn’t supposed to be published. Now, aside from the fact that this wasn’t supposed to be made public, I don’t see anything in there that I’d consider confidential or surprising. In other words, Chris wasn’t compromising our national security.

But apparently someone from the government showed up at his house last night with a subpoena, wanting to know who leaked him the document. Overkill much? You’d think they have bigger things to worry about, like, oh, I don’t know, terrorism?

Makes me happy I didn’t post…. oh, nevermind. :D

    I am in the same boat as you, I strongly disagree with Chris very often but this seems like MASSIVE overkill. I hope he can find the backers to help him fight the government on this.

    i have been sitting out from blogging too much about this yet since I haven’t personally experienced any of the new initiatives, but after reading that I was glad I never posted anything to my blog.
