Skip to comments.NSA Spied on US Journalists — And You!

Here's a chilling interview of former NSA analyst Russell Tice conducted by Keith Olbermann. While I'm not the biggest Olbermann fan in the world, he asked some important questions about how far the NSA went during the Bush administration. It's a chilling interview. Hopefully restraining the NSA to 4th Amendment boundaries will be a priority for the Obama administration.
And while we are talking about privacy, we also need to keep the government out of the panties of our 13-year-old daughters and our private health records, too.
I’m sure the person assigned to spy on me is bored stiff.
What’s the deal posting Keith olbermann articles? The guy gives pond scum a bad name.
Hey, don’t sell yourself short. There was some juicy stuff there! :-)
Pish Posh! Americans are more worried about “Speed Cams”.
So we elect a potential communist dictator to help guide us to a more fair and balance direction?????
Well, if the NSA under President Bush did a bit of snooping on Americans, I’d bet we ain’t seen nothing yet.
“Im sure the person assigned to spy on me is bored stiff.”
Not really, I have many other cases assigned to watch over.
By the way, your computer screen looks dusty from here, you may want to get some of that computer screen cleaner at Target.
odumbo’s making a list, and checking it twice...
No Such Agency has always been kind of creepy. They’ve done nasty evil stuff during every administration.
If you are expected to catch terrorists in your net, you have to also look at the lives of innocent citizens. Many are innocent, but act suspicious, while a few are terrorists who act innocent. What else can you do but apply the filters to their lives to sort them all out? Unless you advocate letting terrorists freely move amongst us to preserve your privacy.
Keith Olbermann, girl panties- good search words to fit together.
This guy is gonna love it when O’s army descends on his household to sign up his daughter for volunteer service. He’d probably be amazed how much information O’s people know about him. and it wasnt gathered looking for terrorism..
I’ll really start worrying when they learn how to tap the POTS quietly; those clicks are sort of reassuring...
How does my hair look? Is the cut me or what?
No Such Agency.
“NSA had access to every telephone call in the US.” So does every telephone company repairman with a buttset on his hip!
“Oh, my God. They were listening to JOURNALISTS!” Trust me, they were not listening to Ann Landers. Imagine the manpower necessary to do that. If a journalist was talking to a terrorist, I am SO glad they monitored the conversation.
“Oh my God. They were listening to US citizens.” If US citizens were talking to terrorists, I'm so glad they did listen.
Bottom line of interview; Tice knows nothing. Olbermann and the NTY were simply trying to create an anti-Bush story where one did not exist. Foolish Bush took the bait and tried to explain it, rather than saying; “Tough sh*t. There is a war on. If you think it's more important for your peperoni-ordering conversation to be secret than for American to not be killed, then go invent some country where you can have that.”
The spying will be increased, but because the targets will be the politically incorrect, the MSM will show no interest.
Time to start thinking of countermeasures.
