Can’t remember the last time the ACLU agreed with me on something. Has hell frozen over, or am I wrong in my take on the NSA spying on U. S. Citizens?

Anyone who believes that NSA saves only the phone numbers and times but not the message itself are too naïve to exist.

Talk about a boring job. Here in a year or two you’re going to be hearing about suicides occurring several times a year from folks at the Bluffdale facility.

Just wait until the blackmail to those who refuse to pay/ here comes the private information on those the political party wants to cause damage to. This government is so out of control. There is a story on the Daily Caller of a Whistleblower now saying that the Bush NSA; his allegations about the extent of Gov’t Surveillance-wiretapping judges, politicians, lawyers, opponents, even says NSA spied on Obama before he was in the White House. Go to dailycaller.com and listen to audio.

They aren’t spying on our enemies, they are spying on THEIR enemies.

The story is on Glenn Beck’s site also.

The Blaze.

Greenwald is handling this brilliantly. Drip, drip, drip. Every time someone in the regime opens their yap, BOOM, the Guardian drops another bom.

Drudge has an article by the Blaze up on top...same topic. Bush-Era NSA Whistleblower Makes Most Explosive Allegations Yet About True Extent of Gov’t Surveillance>

Whistleblower claims they went after lots of people to include:
They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand

It's frightening and infuriating what they are doing.

This sure has put a reality on what America has become by these radicals and those who will not defend us. The NSA are watching all of us, I believe to those who are speaking up against this administration; not for our security. I just cannot believe he has not been charged with unconstitutional abuses. I pray each day for God to help us since most men in power are corrupt and lost in that power.

Interesting article, but it looks like it was done when Bush was in office. Doubt this hurts obbammer.

Whether it “hurts” Obama or Bush....it is certainly hurting the American people. It needs to stop.

So you say there’s a drone hovering outside the patio door?

Hey, did anyone really think that Big Brother would be cowed by a little controversy in the press?

The future is now; get used to it.

And, yes, Big Brother IS watching you.

The ACLU, IIRC, sided with Colonel Oliver North during his Iran-Contra ordeal.

Sometimes (not often) they get it right.

The Papa Bush/CIA heritage was always problematic.

Exactly. I hope 1,000 whistleblowers come forward on this stuff.

Yep. Sure gives some context to Beck’s hystrionics last week.

Lol, the silver lining in all of this is that from now on anytime someone has a problem with their computer or cellphone they’ll complain “d!#!-ed NSA!”.

The terrorists already know of it and for all its worth it didn’t stop recent attacks. Ergo, it’s a domestic political tool in the same vein as systems used by the Stasi, NKVD and Gestapo.
