National Security Letters

In an unusual anonymous letter to the editor, "My National Security Letter Gag Order," the president of a small internet service provider said:

I found it particularly difficult to be silent about my concerns while Congress was debating the reauthorization of the Patriot Act in 2005 and early 2006. If I hadn't been under a gag order, I would have contacted members of Congress to discuss my experiences and to advocate changes in the law.
