If Jeh Johnson gets his way, we can kiss Miranda rights goodbye.
Obama's nominee for secretary of Homeland Security proves to be an aggressive advocate for drone warfare and lawless interrogation policy, escalating fear of "terrorists at home" and calling for increased surveillance within U.S. borders.
