Obama will not be impeached, ever. Nor will he be convicted. You'd have to be a moron to think there's justification for bringing a bill of impeachment.

But then, you're a Rightie...:)

The hunt for bin laden went on for 10 years and was instigated by George W. Bush...the information obtained at gitmo was responisble for the trail to the courier and doctor who gave the whereabouts to bin ladens compuound. The doctor is currently in jail in Pakistan with NO hope from oblubmer. Oblumber is afraid of the truth being revealed that he and biden had nothing to do with finding obl. Can't have that..the gullible lefites would crap their britches.

No wonder FAUX has got teabaggers entranced.

Those were MOVIES, you dolt.

Bush’s priorities have always been skewed. Just months after declaring he wanted bin Laden “dead or alive,” Bush said,“I truly am not that concerned about him.” Turning his attention away from bin Laden, Bush trained his focus on Iraq — a country he now admits had “nothing” to do with 9/11.

Bet you still think Ronnie brought down the Berlin wall.

Read this or have the kids on the "short bus" explain to you.

Section 215 was an expansion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was originally passed in 1978. That act gave the government the ability to issue secret warrants for specified items, like records from car rental companies or storage facilities, on the approval of a secret court if that was relevant to a terrorism investigation and if the suspect was a suspected spy or terrorist.



Section 215 dramatically broadened the scope of that power. Now the government can seize, as you said, any tangible thing. In addition, 215 removed the limitation that it had to be a suspected spy or terrorist whose records were being sought. Now, anyone's records can be sought. The only limitation is that the secret warrant has to be relevant to a national security investigation.

All wiretapping of American citizens by the National Security Agency requires a warrant from a three-judge court set up under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. After the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Patriot Act, which granted the President broad powers to fight a war against terrorism. The George W. Bush administration used these powers to bypass the FISA court and directed the NSA to spy directly on al Qaeda in a new NSA electronic surveillance program. Reports at the time indicate that an "apparently accidental" "glitch" resulted in the interception of communications that were purely domestic in nature. This action was challenged by a number of groups, including Congress, as unconstitutional.

The exact scope of the program is not known, but the NSA is or was provided total, unsupervised access to all fiber-optic communications going between some of the nation's largest telecommunication companies' major interconnected locations, including phone conversations, email, web browsing, and corporate private network traffic.

Sh^t for brains teabagger.

This coming from the Liberal dingbat that secured a record number of Obamacare waivers for her district. Another gun-control, big government idiot. The FBI has drones flying over America right now, how many other agencies have them too, and who is controlling them, and who is giving oversight? Can we be sure the agencies will not leak our information and images like the IRS did? Are the drones armed? What other info is scanned by the NSA, okayed by secret courts?

"instigated"?

HAHAHAHAHAH!

CLINTON "instigated" started "looking" for Bin Laden ...

George Bush put no real effort into it- and it seems he had Bin Laden in his grasp at Tora Bora in 2001.

Views change when one enters the office he never sat in before.

Besides, you guys NEVER blinked an eye when Bush did this - just another manufactured conspiracy - like the IRS nonsense that Issa's gone radio silent about, after being made an ass of by Rep. Cummings.

Lose your money. then the pecking order will narrow. You are a financial coward where the bottom feeders pay first. Keep the cops. Keep the police state. But it does not end up that way when some group ends up getting the blame. You see it now with ghetto people. fifty years of it and they hate people who they blame, with no guilt from their own irresponsible actions. Remember there are many programs to end poverty. People play a game to stay on it.

Pelosi's right wing roots are showing again. I will never forget her open public statements that she would make sure there was never oversight of bush's criminality. That makes her complicit with the treason of bush, along with all the other crimes. How could anyone call her a liberal?
