Skip to comments.Bush-Era Whistle-Blower: Obama Was NSA Wiretap 'Victim' In 2004 (before Democratic convention)
Posted on 06/20/2013 2:38:37 PM PDT by drewh
Former National Security Agency analyst Russ Tice, a Bush-era whistleblower, has recently made some startling claims that the federal governments wiretap endeavors targeted high-ranking government including military officials, lawmakers and diplomats.
One of those target wound up being elected president. In a talk show appearance on Wednesday, Tice made the astonishing claim that the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Democratic Senate hopeful Barack Obama in 2004, weeks prior to his breakout at the 2004 Democratic Convention in Boston.
Now, heres the big one, Tice said. I havent given you any names. This was in summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator for Illinois. You wouldnt happen to know where that guy lives right now would you? Its a big white house in Washington, D.C. Thats who they went after, and thats the president of the United States now.
In 2006, Tice was a whistleblower revealing other indiscretions of the Bush administration NSA, claiming that revealing details about government spying on citizens was an effort to clear his conscience.

Makes you wonder what Al-Queda operative Obie was talking with.
The guy should have come up on a commie watch list and should have been stopped. At the very least, they should have warned us about him. A lot of good “tapping” did. (I don’t believe the “whistle blower”)
And he felt so bad he had to wait almost ten years to talk about it? Who’s looking for some cash?
Unless you can give us something, you only pat yourself.
BS! Don’t buy it for a second....sorry.
The NSA has always spied on the CIA.
I wonder if President Empty Chair is requesting a copy of all the content of those taps.....they might be quite revealing..so....if NSA hsa info somewhere,,does that mean Snowden has a copy of it?
I think it was probably Barry Soetoro’s connections to the Saudis that did it.
See, it proves it program doesn’t work, we still ended up with an Al-Qaeda sympathizer in the White House...
GOOD THING we spent all those filthy billions on the NSA, right?
Cuz otherwise, ya know, we could have maybe ended up with a Prez who was maybe easily blackmailed —maybe even a bisexual, foreign Muslim, right...?
WHEW...! Really dodged a bullet there...!
I don’t believe it happened...lol. It is just manufactured crap to take the heat off the abuses of power in the Obama Administration. If they looked into Obama for real....he would have never become President.
I’m not buying it either.
You forgot the cociane abuse...
the NSA went after Obama in 2004 for political reasons ...and yet, somehow we still don’t know the facts of his birth and college education, for starters. That means the recipients of the NSA’s collection efforts on him were incompetent or in league with Obama or that the collection effort never took place.
“And he felt so bad he had to wait almost ten years to talk about it? Whos looking for some cash?”
he must be getting ready to write a book. Out come the lies
That explains why we know everything about Obama there is to know. Thank you whistleblower, thank you NSA.
It’s entirely possible.
In 2004, leftist groups in this country were coordinating with the various groups in Iraq fighting against the US.
They used Abu Grahab (SP?) as a BS story to rouse up the resistance in Iraq and was used by the left in this country as a symbol of the “plight of the Black Man in Americas prison” and you also had the Nick Berg video which was made to symbolize Abu Grahab but was made before Abu Grahab became public in this country. The terrorist wouldn’t have known about abu Grahab as it wasn’t public.
The person that did have the information was Hillary Clinton.
Our little lefty friends coordinated that video of Nick berg with the terrorist in Iraq. Bergs father was with International ANSWER.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This is about the third ‘hint’ given that Obama was taped in the past... this - with the Russian President etc. etc... Don’t know what to make of this...
I don’t doubt that some of the leftist groups coordinating with The Iraq resistance were targeted..they should have been. What I doubt is that Barack Obama was targeted...unless he was working with them too and in that case..why would they have ever allowed him to become President? Why wasn’t anything leaked about his shady past to prevent his nomination?
I just don’t buy it.
This guy’s trying to muddy the waters, he knows nobody buys his claim, he just wants to cast doubt on whistleblowers.
lol, they’re really getting desperate now.
Well, yeah. He wouldn’t shut his yap.
LOL! I'm stealing that and putting it in my back pocket for the first time some popcorn fart tries to throw this in my face....
Notice how the Bush-rapping stories always seem to come out of the USA press, while the only truthful stories about Obastard come from Europe? And they’re the “Land of the Weenies!”
Sure it wasn’t actually Jack Ryan, Obama’s opponent until he was forced to drop out after his sealed divorce reports were made public? Makes more sense.
