NSA reveals more secrets after court order

The Obama administration has given up more of its surveillance secrets, acknowledging that it was ordered to stop scooping up thousands of Internet communications from Americans with no connection to terrorism - a practice it says was an unintended consequence when it gathered bundles of Internet traffic connected to terror suspects.

BULLSH1T!!!!!!!!!!
This is a "plausible deniability" escape. Obama is a politician and is circling the drain on ethics. He is going to believe these things because he got Bin Laden and now someone needs to pay for the witch hunt.

Someday, this will be known like the McCarthy era. For now though, this country is filled with witch hunters whose agendas and targets are yet to be discovered. Some of the victims probably have their own crimes to pay for but nobody is going to follow the money beyond the NSA. They're the designated fall guys who will act out the role of the NAZIs while the financiers safely stash all their stolen loot away in Switzerland.

Have a nice trip and I hope you don't find yourselves becoming slaves to your own lies. Just keep saying that you did it all in the name of the victims of 9/11. A dog serves its master and that is the only ethical consideration a dog needs.

But you WILL obey your master!

"Ethics"??? No one who still supports Obama cares about ethics, personal freedoms, or the rule of law under the Constitution. Obama supporters spoke in a clear voice last November. A government by the people for the people was rejected in favor of mindless slavery to Big Brother/Big Govt.

Actually March 4, 1933 is when the government by the people for the people was rejected & US Consistitution was suspended in favor of mindless slavery to Big Brother/Big Govt and it has been that way ever since and that is what is wrong.

US Constitution was Suspended since 1933!

http://endthefedusa.ning.com/forum/topics/us-...

and Senate Report 93-549 in 1973 concluded that the US had been in a Continuous state of a National Emergency since 1933 and the US constitution was suspended according to the report. The debate to end long-running states of National Emergency was ended in 1976 with the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651), which limits any such declared emergencies to two years and why there is a constant need to justify a national emergency every two years so Washington DC can keep suspending the US Constitution.

Where is all the nay sayers from a month ago? All those people saying that americans were not being spied on and we need tin foil hats?

If you have followed the NSA leaks at all the the spin the gov keeps trying to put on it, it would be very clear that your gov is spying on you.

All the politicians supporting broad spying should be hung for treason.

Why does the GOP leadership support the spying on each and every American and collecting his e-mails during 3 or more years of the Obama dictatorial regime of lies? It is time for the failed GOP leadership and establishment that act like spineless losers that is ‘going along’ the Obama anti-American, lawless, constitution trashing and Mozlem Brother Sympathizer agenda to retire. All these same old for lifetime politicians including the ‘same as liberal RINO including McConnell, McCain, Graham, Boehner that fight for their seat for lifetime while sacrificing the American constitution that is trashed on a daily basis by Obama &co. need to give way to the patriotic American conservative leaders including Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and let them save America before it is too late.

Each day, more and more Democratic voters around the Nation are admitting that failing to support Romney may have been the last chance their children have for a bright American future.

I'll give a hint, after each of their name is the letter "D" with a hyphen (-) and the 2 letter state abbreviation code. I know I know, SHOCKER!!

You're not getting the message. What are you willing to DO about anything? Not a lot, I suspect. We all have to choose to follow a dark path sometime. Have you thought it through? If you keep your silence, I'll obviously decide that you're just looking for your own disposable shock troops. I don't see any Republicans ready to break the capitalist blind ambition. No message here to bother reporting to anyone.
