Random Wikipedia of the Day (RWotD): Church Committee

A lot of people concerned about NSA because of Edward Snowden may not be familiar with the Church Committee, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_Committee.

The Church Committee was a US Senate Committee that looked into illeagal spying by the NSA, FBI, & CIA back in 1975.

I was reminded of it when I read this Gawker article http://gawker.com/after-30-years-of-silence-the-original-nsa-whistleblow-1454865018 on Perry Fellwock (aka Winslow Peck), a former NSA employee turned Whistleblower back in 1971 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Fellwock.
