I am giving thought to writing both Senators (they use Web forms rather 
than actual e-mail addresses) to ask a full accounting for this matter, 
calling it "yet another assault on the US Constitution and the American 
way of life" (tm?) or using other inflammatories like "Stalin's 
playbook" or "policies and procedures straight outta Beijing". It will 
take me a while to be able to put together anything intelligent, but 
those of you with the knowledge and charisma *MIGHT* do well to organize 
a petition of some sort.
