https://www.yahoo.com/gma/georgetown-tests-case-reparations-longstanding-political-debate-unfolds-082844818—abc-news-topstories.html

Actual headline:

Georgetown students vote overwhelming in favor of $27 fee for slavery reparations

What is should be:

Georgetown students get dopamine rush from virtue signaling by voting to have their wealthy parents pay 27$ per semester to the University so they can pay reparations for the Universities 200 year old crimes against humanity.

 

Basically the University is letting their students parents pay for their sins.  University needs to pay up by supporting African American communities in some way, but the students want to make themselves feel morally superior by getting their parents to foot the bill so why would Georgetown want to turn that down?{#Lol}

I know libertarians are not crazy about FISA court (I assume this is what you're alluding to) and I share your concern regarding it's potential for abuse. However, I am not as naive as Henry Stimson in believing that espionage, and keeping certain things secret, is something we should dispense with because "gentlemen do not read each others' mail". If China and Russia and other countries are attacking our cyber infrastructure and other political or economic institutions, we should certainly engage in efforts to detect and thwart such meddling. The Church commission certainly found abuses back in the 70s like MK ULTRA, etc. and there's probably some bending of the rules going on today. But there is intelligence legitimately gathered whose release would endanger the source. Not only that, but when the intelligence comes from another nation (like Israel in the case of Trump's ignorant exposure of intelligence they provided, which he boasted to Russian ambassador Kislak about) and you haven't cleared this sort of exposure with them first, they're likely to be pissed, especially if their source turns up dead.

In short, pointing to excesses by intelligence and law enforcement agencies like the FBI and CIA is not a valid justification for saying that the government should always release any information it possesses.

 
let's brass tack it

who decides on the level of accountability?

This whole sordid affair drips irony. I heard the anchor on NPR this morning arguing with a member of the Intelligence Committee (a former intelligence officer with the CIA) that releasing the memo would do terrible harm to the classified sources and methods of the FBI.

A news organization. Arguing that the government not release information. Because it would damage the FBI's ability to conduct operations it isn't supposed to be allowed to conduct.

Let all that sink in.

Yeah, everyone looks really bad on this.  Both parties, and a lot of the players have swung so hard to a differing viewpoint because it is politically convenient it is astounding. Very few have any credibility left. I think this is what the Russians really wanted by interfering in elections (not just ours).
