No doubt SLDN leader Steve Ralls celebrated when he heard the Pentagon will dismantle its dissident monitoring TALON program, a program that included gay rights groups on its hit list.
The move does, however, have a downside, as Ralls explains:
This is, yes, a certain victory for civil liberties, and we should all celebrate this small step toward individual rights and sexual privacy. The exhibitionist in us, though, might feel a bit left out in the cold. After all, what’s more exciting than the thought of all those military intelligence boys at DoD getting a kick out of your kisses?
We’re missing the government’s prying eyes already…

Yeah, except all the information gathered by TALON was sent to the FBI. No word on what if anything J. Edgars Baby is planning to do with it.
