Skip to comments.Guardian: NSA contractor was source of massive U.S. surveillance leak
Posted on 06/09/2013 4:42:29 PM PDT by lyby
"New York Republican Rep. Peter King, chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence and Terrorism and a member of the Select Committee on Intelligence, said: "If Edward Snowden did in fact leak the NSA data as he claims, the United States government must prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law and begin extradition proceedings at the earliest date. The United States must make it clear that no country should be granting this individual asylum. This is a matter of extraordinary consequence to American intelligence."

Maybe tar and feathers for politicians should come back into vogue, IMHO.
This is a matter of extraordinary consequence to American intelligence.”
It is also a matter of extraordinary consequence to every American who is being spied on despite our Constitutional rights.
Mr. King screw you/
Mr. King - Right after you prosecute Panetta for leaking the Seal Team 6 identities that resulted in their deaths.
King just said on FOX : ... He should have gone to theJustice Department!”...
King is in major CYA mode!
If he’d gone to the justice department he’d have been found in Fort Marcy Park with 3 suicide bullet wounds to the back of his head.
King, you 0bama, Holder and the rest can go to hell!
Please put me on his jury! Revealing the rogue government that has taken over MY Country deserves a medal, not prosecution!
I hope the guy finds asylum, but will he a lot of governments are corrupt, power-hungry, and invasive?
The first of many whistleblowers, I hope.
I, too, hope there are many more whistleblowers!
I suspect that King, along with many others, has everything to lose if this thing gets traction... he and others have sold their souls for their own comforts and power.
Folks, can I make a point here?
THESE DAYS, WHAT MOSLEM TERRORIST USES HIS HOME PHONE OR HIS PERSONAL VERIZON CELLPHONE ACCOUNT TO PLOT TERRORIST ACTS OR COMMUNICATE WITH HIS FELLOW TERROR-CELL MEMBERS?
At least 10 years ago, even morons started using disposable drop phones purchased for cash at any bodega in the world.
By contract, who DOES use their home phones and personal cell phones?
Patriots. Christians. Jews. Random citizens. Tea Party folks.
The Obama/Marxist definition of terrorist surveillance is SPYING ON, AND PUNISHING AMERICAN CITIZENS.
Hence the IRS persecution of Christian/Jews/TEA.
Hence the domestic spying by NSA.
Remember, Russia warned FBI about the Boston Marathon bomber(s) TWICE, but they didnt give a crap.
The goal here is complete control blackmailing judges and rival politicians.... and citizens when they get uppity.
Thanks, your point is right on.
The reason The Regime has gotten away with so much has been as we know because the media has been gleefully covering Zero’s ass and the lack of whistleblowers. Whereas before the media was in full attack mode 24/7 against Bush and lauded whistleblowers as great Patriot heroes.
The Regime is starting to crack from the intense pressure of it’s crimes, arrogance, corruption and abuses. We need a lot more Snowdens to step forward under the shelter of The People who demand justice and redress of their grievances. Instead of the sneering, snarky, contemptuous, dismissiveness that conservatives have been subjected to until it’s gotten so bad that they simply can no longer maintain a shred of credibility - and still try to carry Obama’s water.
I am from humble means, but if I need to get “uppity,” I most certainly can do it. I will not and have not “sat down” when there is/has been an issue with which must be dealt assertively - to my husband’s proud dismay.
In the not too distant past, King has turned me totally and thoroughly against him. He’s a BIG GOVERNMENT PROGRESSIVE!
First post I’ve seen about the disposable phones. Thank you.
I’ll add, the only people who will benefit from this NSA phone tracking are divorce lawyers... in the very near future.
What if Edward Snowden shouted, “Allah akbar!”?
Would he be “safe” then?
He listed several government agencies including congress where he could have registered a complaint.
Obviously King does not understand how little our government is trusted.
Yes he broke the law
Years ago I witnessed a fellow teacher throwing a challenged child against a wall and swearing. (This was not the only time). Precedure said to report to principal. He did nothing. I told Dr and lawyer it got reported to CPS. Was harassed by both union and administration. Forbid to tell parents. Teacher is now a principal. Would I have gotten the others involved again? You betcha! Wish there was more that could have been done.
Sometimes rules must be circumvented in order to do the right thing. Wish there had been other options for him but at this time there seemed to be few options. Standing up to enemies within steps on many toes!
Heaven protect us from our protectors.
“Who watches the Watchmen?”
The “little” people - you and I.
And if we do nothing?.....
The guys a hero, not a criminal. The founding fathers outs have given him a medal...
If he is former military he took oath to constitution that didn’t just stop being in effect when he started working for the contractor. SOME military guys take that oath to the constitution seriously and for a lifetime.
Today it's different.
they vet the enemy and it is us.
So it's plain wrong to leak.
The guys a hero, not a criminal. The founding fathers would have given him a medal...
Prediction: Edward Snowden = Obama’s John Dean
The guy was stationed in Hawaii. If you don’t think the administration is scrambling right now to figure out all the government secrets this guy was privy to, you have not been paying attention.
It certainly makes you wonder about chief justice roberts sudden switch on obamacare....... If Obama is willing to use information on conservative supporters to thwart his agenda, why wouldnt he do the same on his prime piece of legislation? He had the means, motive and a track record of willingness.
Are we not doing something? I do not know how to “fight” other than to share information and question “authority,” which I believe tramples on our Constitutional rights. I fight with words and ideals... perhaps that is not enough, but that is all I have to offer.
Wasn’t it some congressman who blabbed that Bin Laden was being tracked by his cell phone. Which was promptly thrown away and, no doubt, led to the terrorists using throwaway phones?
Wish those who took the oath to the constitution second only to their oath to God more seriously. Unfortunately our society reward the go along to get along society
Huckabee is covering this on his program now
They have voice tracking id. They know who is calling regardless.
“you have not been paying attention.”
Your “you” is an all-encompassing/generic reference, is it not?
Who watches the Watchmen?And when we do, they sic the IRS on us.
The little people - you and I.
Maybe he saw
the authentic birth certificate numbered
and it wasn't Obama's?
Unclear as to your implication. I read in another article that Edward Snowden has a GIRLfriend, if that helps to clarify your question.
I would like to point something out. I believe Edward Snowden is the first defector in the name of freedom in the US.
It certainly makes you wonder about chief justice roberts sudden switch on obamacare.......
I have had doubts all along.
True. But since they are in control of the majority of the media it’s only through Internet that the fight can be waged one person by one person
I believe Edward Snowden is the first defector in the name of freedom in the US.
Perhaps he is...
May God keep him and his loved ones safe.
since they are in control of the majority of the media its only through Internet that the fight can be waged one person by one person
Which is why we are here!
He took an oath to protect the Constitution. Not this administration.
So, do these guys restrict their business to sympathetic people ~ like everybody else? Probably.
They don't want to know who calls you BTW.
Two or more gathered is not just strength in religion!
You’re a good liberal!
Are YOU calling me a liberal?!
No way. No how.
Just ask my mama. When I told her about 25 years ago that I could no longer associate myself with the Democrat party, she informed me that there had been an earthquake in VA, felt all the way from SW VA to Richmond. I told Mama that if that had happened, surely I would have heard about it... She replied, laughingly, that it was just all my dead relatives rolling over in their graves.
Emphatically, NO! I am NOT a liberal. I AM a Constitutional conservative.
