We believe that the [...] government should have broad authorities to investigate terrorism and espionage, and that it is possible to aggressively pursue terrorists

I am in agreement with that statement, as long as the government never gets do define the meaning of "terrorism", "espionage" and "terrorists".

Those of you who experienced the Red Scare will understand my sentiment.

Achieving this goal depends not just on secret courts and secret congressional hearings

What's the goal -- having a police state? There NO place for secret courts and secret Congressional hearings in a free society.

Since there is no "free society", the question becomes academic.

I have successfully recovered SIGNIFICANT funds (so significant that I am retired now at the age of 37) from three different police departments under 42 USC 1983 for violation of my civil rights

So let me see if I understand this.
You got "SIGNIFICANT funds" from your fellow taxpayers, while the miscreants that violated your civil rights didn't have to pay a cent of their own money, and most likely got an extra paid vacation (a.k.a "suspended with pat") as a bonus?
