Apparently the chilling effect of Justice Department leak investigations on communications between government officials and the press has not been so chilling after all.
It certainly did not deter former CIA employee and National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who has admitted that he is the principal source of recent leaks to The Post and the Guardian revealing top-secret NSA programs tracking terrorist communications.
The exposure of the PRISM program under which the NSA monitors foreign terrorists on the Internet, as well as the leak of a top-secret court order requiring Verizon to share calling data with the government, are incredibly damaging to national security. These leaks give terrorists information they did not have about our collection activities. They undermine the willingness of American companies to cooperate with us because these leaks have put their international reputations at risk. And they teach everyone including sources and liaison partners not to work with us because we cannot keep a secret.
But instead of being outraged by the damage done by these leaks, critics on the left and right are criticizing the NSA for undertaking activities that are lawful, constitutional and absolutely vital to protecting the country.
Calm down, folks. Big Brother is not watching you.

Well, it is, in fact, -—>His fault.<-—
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
And islam is a “religion” of piece.
We can trust The 0bama Administration (”The Most Transparent Ever”) not to abuse the information and power in their hands.
(*cough* IRS *cough*)
When this all broke I predicted then that Pres Bush will come out in support of the spying. I still believe he will.
The surveillance society may have been instituted with the intent of protecting citizens from external threats (a legitimate function of government),
but when leftists attain power, they use that power to make sure they STAY in power, and use that power to spitefully punish those who oppose them.
He probably would have said as much publicly, but everyone knows that wouldn’t help the situation.
F George Bush for starting this and F Obama for making it worse.
Just because Bush did it doesn’t make it right.
Didn’t Obama claim he would stop it? Instead he made it worse.
Our Government—————we cannot trust it any longer.
The underlying globalist agenda.
“Calm down, folks. Big Brother is not watching you.” - Marc A. Thiessen
I dare Mr. Thiessen to send himself an email threatening to kill the President, because he knows he’s not a terrorist, right?
I wonder how hard Jorge Bush is working behind the scenes to pass amnesty. I would bank on it.
Love your nick ... going hot
We have the expectation to be free from oversight in our homes, our associations, and our communications.
If someone thinks a person is a terrorist, then get a warrant and go for it.
Leave the rest of us alone.
If data is collected, it will be abused. That IS NOT what this nation is about. I simply refuse to buy into it.
Beware of conservative “vigilantes” eh Jorge?
” If data is collected, it will be abused. That IS NOT what this nation is about. I simply refuse to buy into it.”
Apparently, it has been abused on a huge scale, and no end in sight.
Intentional all caps:
WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE PRE-BUSH, PRE-CLINTON, PRE-OBAMA DAYS. IN THE NEXT ELECTION: NO BUSHES, NO CLINTONS, NO OBAMAS — NOR ANY OF THEIR STINKING ASSOCIATES. START WITH A CLEAN SLATE. IT’S ALL I CAN TAKES, I CAN’T TAKES NO MORE!!!!!!
I don’t think conservatives care what GW says about this- do we?
He was not a friend to conservatives. Nice guy, likable, sure.. but his policies were not great.
I bet Mr. Thiessen would.
