To secure and protect your freedoms, we must be willing to have a gubamint snooping thru our every detail of our lives... and our allies.
it’s the American way , y’know.
Do the feds and lawmakers sue the information for insider trading in the name of personal gain? Me thinks the government is only looking out for personal, financial and political gain, and not national security
The new charts show both the details of the Prism system and the authorization process. Snowden has not talked much about either of these. But he has, for example, inferred that any Analyst has free reign to browse the collected data. The charts say NO to that.
Now it is certainly possible, some would say likely, that the Analysts get rubber stamp approval to do their browsing. I suspect not. Others will disagree.
But the chart tells us that there is a review and approval process in place at NSA and, if you look closely, at the FBI. In the case of the FBI there is the notation: “Research and Validate no USPERs” which would mean, I assume, that the FBI needs to insure that No U.S. Persons are being looked at for the request in question.
Is the system honored? As Hamlet would remind us, that is the question.
Yup ...... makes sense to me ...... NOT
They are running rampant and literally trampling the US Constitution before our very eyes now to achieve their aims.
I find the idea of top-secret Powerpoint presentations hilarious.
In contrast, the DU thread on this subject is getting a lot of attention and some surprisingly (for the DU) interesting comments.
I'm assuming it is OK to link to DU but I could be wrong. If so Admin should delete this post. In any case, here is the DU link:
PRISM bump for later...
"Prism" 2. A transparent body of this form, often of glass and usually with triangular ends, used for separating white light passed through it into a spectrum or for reflecting beams of light.
(Who disguises himself as a 'angel of light'? Hint: 2 Cor. 11:14)
PRISM is prison. You just can't feel the chains.
The Washington comPost is part of the Obama administration?
if GWB was president, the dems would be screaming “impeachment”.
Why would anyone be surprised by this? The google, microsoft, facebook and all types of “computer” big wig nerds have been having dinner at the white house for a long time.
And don’t think Bush didn’t have his fingers in this. I’m convinced Roberts was blackmailed. And the Bush administration didn’t know Roberts had dirt in his background that could be used against him? Right.
Who’s the traitor who ratted this government out?
