“There is a system in place at NSA “to rat on ourselves when we don’t get it right and to fix it when we don’t get it right,” a senior intelligence official told reporters Wednesday.”

Interesting choice of words.

Is there any one on the panel that is not an extreme left wing ideologue?

Sorry, don’t like it. Didn’t like MJ snubbing GHW Bush, and I don’t like this. I don’t respect the man but I do respect the office. Go, smile and show you have more class than Pres. Obama and his followers.

This is the same Cass Sunstein who proposed that the government should hire paid trolls to counteract "conspiracy theories" (i.e. anti-government speech) on the Internet:
Obama Appointee Sunstein Favors Infiltrating Online Groups

"President Barack Obama's appointee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs advocated in a recent paper the 'cognitive infiltration' of groups that advocate 'conspiracy theories' like the ones surrounding 9/11 via 'chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine' those groups. Sunstein admits that 'some conspiracy theories, under our definition, have turned out to be true' Sunstein has also recently advocated banning websites which post 'right-wing rumors' and bringing back the Fairness Doctrine.

I guess the theory that the government is trying to sabotage the discussion is one of those "conspiracy theories" that "have turned out to be true".
