The NSA Has at Least 1 Liberal Friend Left: Sen. Al Franken
It's pretty lonely to be the National Security Agency right now. The revelation of a massive data-collection program has left many progressive senators criticizing the agency, from Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., to Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. But one of the other most liberal senators in Congress is so far speaking out in NSA's support: Al Franken.

Franken, the Minnesota Democrat who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee, knew about the data-mining. Or at least that's what he told Minnesota's WCCO on Tuesday. "I can assure you, this is not about spying on the American people," Franken said. The senator also believes the data collection has saved American lives:

I have a high level of confidence that this is used to protect us, and I know that it has been successful in preventing terrorism.



There are certain things that are appropriate for me to know that is not appropriate for the bad guys to know.
Last Thursday, Franken issued a press release that expressed concern about the privacy-security balance in the NSA program.

Franken hasn't always been so forgiving of similar practices. At a September 2009 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the reauthorization of expiring components of the USA Patriot Act, Franken read the Fourth Amendment to the assistant attorney general for national security as a means of questioning the act's "roving wiretap" provision. Franken would also eventually vote against a 2012 reauthorization of the FISA amendments that give the government wide surveillance authority.

In an early 2006 AlterNet interview before he was officially running for Senate, Franken disparaged the Bush administration's NSA warrantless-surveillance program, laughing off a similar rationale to the one he's used in part to justify the current program:

They're trying to justify these warrantless wiretaps by saying, "Oh, it's al-Qaida!" One guy is saying it's just al-Qaida--the Hayden guy, and then on the other hand, you hear from the FBI that they were inundated with referrals on all kinds of stuff with these calls, so much so that they couldn't get to their real work, and that none of the referrals led anywhere.



I think it's a Roveian strategy: "We win on national security; we'll scare people, and then we'll just win."

If the Obama administration decided to nuke Hawaii, the Netherlands, and Australia just because it was time to do so, it's followers, the Obamaites, would defend the action ferociously as only mindless worshipers can. It is almost impossible for this faction to admit that G.W. Obama has been a failure to the American people, and in some ways, a traitor to his oath of office. And it really makes them itch that he has carried on almost every failed policy of his predecessors administration. Al Franken is one of these democratic drones.

Franken has done a lot of flip flopping on this issue. He told MPR that he didn't think the NSA could be trusted. He said the same thing last year to WCCO. Now he comes out saying NSA is not spying on the American people. Which is it Al?

Don't waste your time providing proof to the super being Wade. It will not be accepted no matter what the source.

Pot, Kettle, Black raised to the nTH power. Hypocrisy raised to the nTH power. One has to wonder how such a being can live with he/she/itself. Maybe it's just the way of low information, no integrity beings.

Dirty Al Franken, "The Pornographic Satirist/Senator" is the epitome of scumbag Demokrat.

Only a true Dirtbag like Willy Cigar Clinton is lower on the Ethics Scale that Dirty Al.

pay no attention to her, she is still waiting in line at the liquor or drug store for her daily fix of her so called reality. She hates that Boeing has a non union work force in place, and the liberal left wing union has lost again, and again and again.
