That's the problem. This administration can't be trusted. We'd like to think these agencies are autonomous from political influences and the "political climate", but I'm more concerned about PRISM than NSA.

You got some magic statistic saying those teachers are on the "left"?

Didn't think so. Carol used to be a teacher, she's certainly not a lefty. Besides, I have yet to see a school district protect a predator teacher going so far as unleashing them on a whole new crop of victims.

So?

Does it state it must explicitly state "We declare war" in the resolution? I will help you out, no it doesn't.

The resolution must include the authorizing of military force.

NSA is old news, PRISM is new.

If you are worrier about privacy why do you post on Topix, send emails, use a smart phone (if you do) etc.
Digital communications are easy to collect.

The UK seems also doing this:
(Reuters)- Britain intercepted phone calls and monitored computers used by officials taking part in two high-level international finance meetings in London in 2009, a British newspaper said on Sunday.

The Guardian said some delegates from countries in the Group of 20 - which comprises top economies around the world - used Internet cafes that had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their emails.

The report was published hours before leaders of the Group of Eight countries - all of which are in the G20 - start a two-day summit in Northern Ireland.

Bad Guy

Someone drew this diagram yesterday. We can't expect them to find the bad guy without any data to narrow down who the bad guy might be.

As far as I'm concerned, they can scan phone numbers until the cows come home.

It's the emails and personal information collected by PRISM that's most concerning even though safeguards are supposedly in place.

"Then-CIA Director David Petraeus objected to the final talking points the Obama administration used after the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, because he wanted to see more details revealed to the public, according to emails released Wednesday by the White House.
Under pressure in the investigation that continues eight months after the attacks, the White House Wednesday released 99 pages of emails and a single page of handwritten notes made by Petraeus' deputy, Mike Morell, after a meeting at the White House on Saturday, Sept. 15. On that page, Morell scratched out from the CIA's early drafts of talking points mentions of al-Qaida, the experience of fighters in Libya, Islamic extremists and a warning to the Cairo embassy on the eve of the attacks of calls for a demonstration and break-in by jihadists.
Petraeus apparently was displeased by the removal of so much of the material his analysts had proposed for release. The talking points were sent to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to prepare her for an appearance on news shows on Sunday, Sept. 16, and also to members of the House Intelligence Committee.
From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130516/N...
Enough with your Think Progress Talking points
In the days after the Benghazi attacks, Petraeus clearly said they approved the changes made to the CIA talking pints. He said there no politics in he changes made.

Fact

You & your ilk did not believe the CIA.

But you treat them as gods in briefing Congress n Iraq.

That chart was so obtuse it lacked any value.

Has the US been continuously at war each and every year?
