NBC's Pete Williams: Justice Dept will likely launch investigation against Guardian re NSA story on seizure of Americans phone records.— Ellie Hall (@ellievhall) June 6, 2013
Aw, even David Sirota is outraged by NSA surveillance program
Shocked, I am. Funny how fast DOJ can move when they are truly concerned.
Out: Get in their faces. In: Get in their SIM cards; Weve all got an Obamaphone now
We plan to go to war against the foreign press? Is the White House aware that those follks actually practice real journalism, and can fight back?
The Justice Department is a US Department and it better start focusing on and prosecuting the illegalities going on at home. The country is enraged over what has gone on and on what is NOT BEING DONE ABOUT IT.
Isn’t The Guardian located in the UK? I wonder what David Cameron will have to say about this.
It’s the Chicago way... that’s is all they know.
I wonder if an official at GCHQ leaked this information.
So they admit it.
Never start a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.
Obama has committed the #1 cardinal sin for a head of state.
Whatever you do, do NOT P*SS OFF YOUR SPOOKS!
The foreign press is the place you can find out what is happening in Amerika.
Yet, when the 2014 elections come around they will have all forgotten about all these scandals and will vote democRAT en mass as always.
Americans have very short memories.
I’m sure they’ll start with Guardian reporter phone records.
Throwing the CIA under the bus for Benghazi was not a wise move at all.
(1) They are proud of it....
(2) They dare you to try and do something about it...
(we don't need no steeenkin' badges...)
.....will not investigate the nefarious actor who illegally and unethically acted....
....but will investigate, instead, the FORIEGN press organ that reported it.
Yep, we are *officially* the Soviet Union.
Obama’s Politburo is outraged that a British paper is finding out the truth about its spying on U.S. citizens. They couldn’t or wouldn’t keep track of the jihadi brothers in Boston, but they are hell on wheels when watching the grandmothers and grandfathers in the TEA Party.
What a disgusting shame that Americans put up with this attack on our liberty by unelected or mis-elected officials.
Yep, and it can truly create “blowback”.
Revolt is coming.
Anything that makes the regime look bad they target, otherwise leaks intend to make Bammy look glorious are not pursued.
This is going downhill fast...
Agreed. 17 months out is a long time for the LIVs to forget (assuming they even know).
The NSA just called to remind me to call my mother. They say its been a while.
It’s a shame.
Time spent by the police state investigating and prosecuting some foreign entity will be time lost from it’s real duties of investigating and prosecuting its own citizens to keep them safe from terrorists.
Thanks, W, for the anti-Patriot Act. A masterful stroke.
Yes, it is located in Great Britain. But you think Obama knows that? He probably thinks its offices are located in the Bible Belt.
Wonder if Verizon has a family and feds plan?
Glory to the All-Pervasive State, Comrade!
Even manbearpig algore is Obscenely Outraged!
Yo Petey! What would your ‘tweet’ be if this were the actions of the George W. Bush White House?
There is No Such Agency...
Nor was flipping the bird to the Brits, apparently.
True. His ego is starting to cost him dearly. That bus is going to have a lot more people under it soon.
That the Guardian broke this story makes me wonder if an American journalist/publication had the story and gave it to the Guardian to avoid the long arm of the Department of JustUs..??..
After this the Brits may not only spring Julian Assange, they may offer him a formal apology.
So? The Just US dept. can investigate all it wants. The most it can do is what? Close down the Guardian's office in NY?
I can see Cameron saying to Eric "the red" Holder, go bugger yourself.
Add to that the irony of the fact that Bush was able to deflect a lot of this attention by claiming that the surveillance was essential to conducting the Global War on Terror.
Obama, on the other hand, just gave a speech declaring that the GWOT is over. DOH!!
Heh...the Guardian is British-based. Good luck prosecuting them.
The question which comes to my mind is why only Verizon? Are they doing the same thing to Sprint, AT&T and all the others too?
Actually, Obama is correct. The war on terror IS over.
The administration are now the terrorists. Hard to have a war on yourself.
Plus, Bush didn't have any terror attacks on his watch since 9-11, whereas 0bama has had 7 (or more) terror attacks on his watch.
Obama doesn't worry. After all, this is nothing a few drones with Hellfires cannot fix.
