...Fox News confirmed early Sunday that all members of the House of Representatives will be invited to a special, secure briefing on the NSA's surveillance programs on Tuesday. It was unclear if there would be a similar briefing for senators.

Congress should demand to see the records of what the government has been searching for in that data. If it turns out to be 10% terrorist related work, and 90% political enemy work, then heads need to roll.

This is all a bunch of hooey. This is a threat to all of Congress. There will be no impeachment or all of you will pay. It is a variation of Hillary’s MADD threat when Bubba was impeached. Where are all those folks who dared to impeach Bubba?

If the info was used for political ends, look for the leaker to die while resisting arrest.

I try to stay away from conspiracy theories, but this administration makes that just about impossible!

Criminal report filed? In the old days they’d just force everyone with the applicable security clearance to take a polygraph test and take it from there.. And they’d do this QUIETLY. But as usual, under 0bama the leaky faucet is complaining about leaks. LOL

My thoughts exactly. All this monitoring didn’t stop the leak about all this monitoring?

The NSA broke the law. They spied on Americans without warrants.

Jail all involved. Thousands if need be. No more benefit of the doubt for “mistakes”.

I'm sure they're on the hunt for domestic terrorists. Searching for keywords like "tea party", "palin", "conservative", "liberty", etc.

So much for the Obama lie that the Center is know and is just for the collection of Foreign Intel.

The same liars that say we are in a pre911 world need all this to protect one city- NYC.

Congress already knows. They are involved.

Only an observation. This whole business with Petraeus, the other general, and the two bimbo’s....ever wondered how that all got started?

Ever wondered why the President is briefed on almost a daily basis now with PRISM updates?

Ever wondered why those numbers with Fox News and that reporter got to be so interesting?

All the President has to do each morning....is meet the PRISM guys with the Justice Department in the room, and lead the conversation in a certain way where five days later....PRISM briefs him with the answer to his question, which the Justice Department then takes off in their own direction. The PRISM guys have no realization of how they are being used.

"all members of the House of Representatives will be invited to a special, secure briefing on the NSA's surveillance programs on Tuesday."

This adds fuel to the speculation by Clarice Feldman (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3029121/posts) and others that this whole issue was planted by Obama to take heat off the other scandals. Inviting the entire House to a secret session will make news, headline news. This will break up the other scandal news, and the media report will be "nothing to see here, it's all Bush's fault."

On Friday, President Obama said the Meta data did not include who made the calls or the contents of the conversations.

Pure Lies. He said the metadata did not include the contents or the conversations. He Did Not say that they did not archive the calls. Legal weasel words. Like BJC when he said "that depends on the definition of is". Lies, Lies and more Lies.

“It is unlikely that Yakov Yurovski acted on his own initiative and it has been documented that the order to assassinate the Imperial Family came from Yakov Sverdlov in Moscow and had been initiated by Lenin himself. It is also well documented that Yurovski had visited the Bolshevik leadership in Moscow, and notably Yakov Sverdlov, only a few weeks before the assassination took place.”

Who is our Sverdlov?

what are the odds the “leaks” will be attributed to GOP “conservatives”, maybe even the “Tea Party”

in order for the progressive agenda to succeed, the deck must be cleared for Pelosi’s return an majority leader in 2014

The entire US Congress will now be swallowed in the soft coup that began in 2008 ... and the Reid/Pelosi democrats will applaud their subjugation wildly

“This is how liberty dies...to thunderous applause”

Time for General ValJar (Valerie Jarrett) to take control of the internet in the name of national security, before even the lamestream media get too uppity

this isn’t about investigating the NSA’s domestic spying, we all know its Bushs fault (sarc)

This mass intimidation of Congress is about Obama’s handlers rooting out the disloyalists, finding and punishing whoever exposed the NSA’s domestic spying

I mean, even dingbat Maxine Waters knew what was going on, the administration building a massive data base on every American for political use, and she stated so, months ago

Whoever the leaker is, the pecking order dictates that he/she has to be directly connected to the White House.

Now tell us that the President learned this from the newspaper, too.

“Congress should demand to see the records of what the government has been searching for in that data. If it turns out to be ......90% political enemy work, then heads need to roll.
******************************************************************
BINGO This needs to be done at the individual database query level. What was the query and who did the query. Where an “interesting” query is found to have been done by a particular person, like a laser beam check out some more queries by that person. And at whose behest were those queries made and to whom were the results distributed.

Hopefully, this examination would be done by folks who would not be deliberately obtuse.

the states will be able to prosecute a massive federal national security agency because they will get all the security access and cooperation they need to do so

just look at how successful they have been on the potus eligibility, border security/immigration, voting laws, and obamacare issues

sarc

where were the states when obama was driving GM dealerships out of business because of what states they were in and who the owners made political donations to?

too little, too late, I think the emperor has won and to thunderous applause from the political party selected in 2012 by 51% of the american voters, or so we have been told

Slick is Hut fodder
Way too many of his personal files (and the missus too) in the hands of General ValJar
Foster autopsy
Stevens autopsy
Chelsea DNA
hillary-huma online chats
arkancide cases
Slick passport records to Russia while in grad school
yada yada yada

Slick and the missus like his hard earned cushy retirement. Boy from Arkansas and his cookie baker wife sure wouldn’t want to see any of their speaking gigs dry up, would they? the Rodham- Clintons wouldn’t want to see the IRS challenge any of their wealth and strip it, would they?
