The solution is simple...all we have to do is REDACTED REDACTED to the REDACTED while REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED and then REDACTED REDACTED REDACTED. Who's in?

Far less effort and resources were used to analyze Japanese radio traffic in the Pacific theater than is being expended on today’s domestic surveillance. Something to ponder.

Notice any parallels?

The Star Chamber (Latin: Camera stellata) was an English court of law that sat at the royal Palace of Westminster from the late 15th century until 1641. It was made up of Privy Councillors, as well as common-law judges and supplemented the activities of the common-law and equity courts in both civil and criminal matters. The court was set up to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against prominent people, those so powerful that ordinary courts would never convict them of their crimes.

Court sessions were held in secret, with no indictments, and no witnesses. Evidence was presented in writing. Over time it evolved into a political weapon, a symbol of the misuse and abuse of power by the English monarchy and courts.

Approved more “phone (foreign contact) snooping”?!

How COULD they . . . . don’t they KNOW that terrorists NO LONGER have the U. S. and the whole Western World targeted for mass killing through, yes, weapons of mass destruction that dwarf the aircraft missiles utilized the Twin Tower slaughter??

It should be apparent to every THINKING PERSON THAT we are most safe here, we have NOTHING MORE to fear from terrorists (including, yes, those with nuclear weapons such as Russia and Korea).

We should at once DIS-BAND not only the NSA but the CIA and every National Security office and reduce our Armed Forces only to the personnel level of providing sweet music on holidays and Presidential parties. Hells bells, people, it’s only Common Sense!!!

I see the plan now - this will buy them enough time to mount a propaganda campaign that will scare Americans into endorsing this permanently.

The decision marks the 36th time the program has been approved by the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

A secret rubber stamp bench of unknown unaccountable government insiders giving other secret unaccountable government insiders the right to poach on people's private lives. And they wonder why 70 % of the populace has no use for the government.

If you want the government to have the power to spy on American citizens, then amend the f***ing Constitution.

Otherwise, the government officials who perpetuate this are all criminals. They are the domestic enemies that Madison, Mason, and Jefferson warned us about.

That is my question. When did this country start having a secret court system? Is this even legal? Can the secret court order someone executed?
