NSA Spied on US Journalists And You!
The Liberty Papers ^ | 1/21/09

Posted on 01/22/2009 6:17:20 AM PST by steve-b

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.

Yawn.... By the way, when are you going to finish that book? Been sitting on your night table for months now.

What’s the scoop on the Lefty Hard-on for xNSA analyst Russell Tice? I am always sceptical of the Lefty Whistleblowers...not that they would have any bias???

**Unless you advocate letting terrorists freely move amongst us to preserve your privacy.**

I advocate exactly that if it does not facilitate the expansion of secret investigations of innocent people. I reference a twentieth century western European power that did something similar...

“The controversy following revelations that U.S. intelligence agencies have monitored suspected terrorist related communications since 9/11 reflects a severe case of selective amnesia by the New York Times and other media opponents of President Bush. They certainly didn’t show the same outrage when a much more invasive and indiscriminate domestic surveillance program came to light during the Clinton administration in the 1990’s. At that time, the Times called the surveillance ‘a necessity.’”

you have to also look at the lives of innocent citizens.

Not unless you want to live in a land of slaves. Disgusting, base, and shameful, this supine welcome to a police state. No such country is worth defending.

I agree with keeping the government out of the panties of your 13 year old. But hey, let’s go a little further. I want the government out of my bathroom so I install and use whatever type of toilet I want to use. I want the government out of my kitchen so I can eat whatever I want. I want the government out of my living room so I can enjoy whatever program without a warning label. I want the government away from my radio so I can listen to whoever I want to. I want the government out of my den so I can use my computer any way I want. I want the government out of my yard so I can remove anything I want or plant/build anything I want. I want the government out of my car so I can with or without seatbelts or smoke in it if I want to. Are you getting the picture?

I bet those copied were calls to overseas locations from the states rather than within the states.
I doubt the entire story was told to create a scandal.

Far too many members of NSA know what the law about monitoring communications within the states is for the FBI. But NSA has the responsibility for all calls to and from overseas.

I doubt it has changed since I was in the program

Something doesn’t smell right with this Tice moron.

Anybody have a full bio on him? Dates, etc.?

His statements about what he works and what he knows don’t jive. Plus I can’t see the NSA keeping him on after revoking his security clearance just to pump gas and be a chauffer. Hell of a salary to be paid as an Intel Analyst to do that stuff. If he was the source of a security breach they should have fired him on the spot.

Still, he’s got a sweet gig going on. Keep flitting from liberal interviewer to liberal interviewer, drop key phrases to cause frothing at the mouth (evesdrop on US citizens, retaliation, Bush) and then tell everyone, well, sorry, I can’t get into specifics because they’ll throw me in jail. Next.

The NSA spying on American citizens is well known as in, for example, its eavesdropping of international personal calls of American soldiers to their families. Hopefully, now that Republcans are out of power, more conservatives will start finally caaring about this.

Ha! What’s title?

BTW. I don’t have night table.

Wipe that smirk off your face.

I would hope they have my profile on their computers. An FBI guy does the security clearance interviews and is typically way late. And their handwriting is really bad. They all better have me on their servers. I work on chit that requires a clearance. It’s a good resume` enhancement to have a clearance.

Yeah, a would be communist dictator who already is appointing his hench men to put limits on the bill of rights. I was reading some of the blogs this morning and came across a video of Holder, during the Clinton administration, advocating censorship of the internet. He also supports the fairness doctrine, and national gun licensing.

You know the guy that runs the lab at Area-51 in the movie “Independence Day”?

80% of NSA employees are JUST LIKE THAT.

The x-employees with enough of a grudge to talk? Those people make that guy look socially normal.

Consider the source.
