Postal Service Does About-Face on "Operation Snoops"

We cheered the Postal Service earlier this week when they announced their workers would not participate in Operation Tips.

Now, the about-face. Seems the Postal Service didn't really understand the program (or so they say) and they and union officials are going to meet with the Justice Department about the program before making up their mind.

By the way, TIPS stands for Terrorist Information and Prevention System.

Also from the CNN article linked above, "Members of civil liberties and privacy groups have joined conservative groups in their condemnation of the proposed program, dubbing it "Operation Snoops."

That's our name for it from now on.
