It’s all Rummy’s fault, yaknow. lol
His mis&disinformation agency is still going strong. ;-)
The entire administration and all of the people that come directly under it are nothing but unmitigated liars. Citizens cannot be expected to believe anything that they say, do, or document, PERIOD.
A lie is more than just “misleading.” They intentionally lied.
For this we gave up our Fourth and Fifth Amendments?
"When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt,
but protects the corrupt from you -
you know your nation is doomed."
How did anything hit such a miniscule target?
Mass surveillance makes us less safe, by giving these Keystone Kops a flood of irrelevant information that distracts them from actual threats.
Literally trillions of bits & bytes of information collected by NSA data mining operations, and they foiled 1 or 2? And they couldn't even foil the the Boston marathon bombers in spite of repeated warnings from Russia?
I wish we could someday elect a genuine, conservative, pro-American, pro-liberty, pro-freedom, Christian, patriotic, constitutional president. Who would then FIRE 90% of the NSA, disband the TSA, Dept of Ed, Dept of Energy, and layoff 50% of rest of government AND limit their retirement pay from full 100% of their salary to 30% of the average of the last 5 years...including judicial, legislative & executive branches.
Personally I think our country will need to go through a tremendous, gut-wrenching, splitting into several regional countries before we would ever find or elect someone who would fit this description.
The actual effect of the NSA's snooping fetish is to make the nation less safe -- while they poke and pry into the private business of innocent citizens, actual information about bad guys (like the warning about Tsarnaev handed to the Feds on a silver platter) gets lost in the noise.
Also, when are these people going to learn that lying just makes it worse when you inevitably get
