Good, freer speech

JAMES GLANZ and JOHN MARKOFF report:
The Obama administration is leading a global effort to deploy “shadow” Internet and mobile phone systems that dissidents can use to undermine repressive governments that seek to silence them by censoring or shutting down telecommunications networks.

I can't help think that these will some day be used against the U.S. Government, sort of like some of the weapons we sell abroad. That, too, is generally good.
