Did I mention the Black Iron Prison?

Tucked away into an intelligence bill just introduced into the House, Section 423 of H.R. 5020, is a provision authorizing the CIA and the NSA to make arrests, "for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States, if such personnel have probable cause to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing that felony offense."

Not one, but two, secret police forces will soon be law. Once they've set up the KGB, will they bother to tell us when they're setting up Lubyanka?

A tip of the nicteis wing to the Federation of American Scientists for the catch.
