The ability to capture, store, process and manipulate a vast amount of data, digital images, recordings, etc. puts history itself in doubt and destroys the concept of private papers and space enshrined in the Fourth Amendment..

Superheroes often live double lives. But so do super-villains. For four years, the Obama administration has been living a double-life regarding drones.
