Coming Clean on Domestic Spying

As the hullaballoo over the NSA spying controversy continues to boil on another government agency is trying a different tactic: spying openly. The Department of Homeland Security has acknowledged that it "can, will and does open mail coming to U.S. citizens from a foreign country whenever it's deemed necessary."

Which, I wonder, is worse: spying on the sly or spying that everyone can see, and nobody can stop? With the threat of democracy terrorism in this country greater than ever, it's a prudent administration that covers its bases by spying every which way imaginable.
