Our esteemed obfuscator, President Obama, is apparently not vouchsafing to release to us poor peasants the contents of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, a document which, if it is to have the force of law, must be ratified by the United States Congress. The contents that have been winkled out (hat tip to The Anchoress) are chilling in their effect:

The internet chapter of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, a secret copyright treaty whose text Obama’s administration refused to disclose due to “national security” concerns, has leaked. It’s bad.
ISPs have to cut off the Internet access of accused copyright infringers or face liability. This means that your entire family could be denied to the internet — and hence to civic participation, health information, education, communications, and their means of earning a living — if one member is accused of copyright infringement, without access to a trial or counsel.
How much longer are we willing to have our elected officials play fast and loose with our Constitutionally protected freedoms, all the while parsing their actions in such a way that we're supposed to be convinced that they're completely innocent of their incursions? Fie on them and their works.

Bunch of thugs!
