[liberationtech] Finfisher Spy Kit Revealed in Bahrain

While Finfisher and company are not American entities, the targets in this
case have been U.S. persons. I suggest those with time and interest write
to their members on Congress on the horrible lack of regulation over these
weapons, particularly if your representation had the foresight to oppose
arms sales to Bahrain this year.
