Well, I hope they lawyer up, if they can afford it.
This should generate some support for the NSA

Whores are whores no matter what continent they live on...
Great - the strines are at it, too.
I remember back in the Clinton era that the predecessor to the current program supposedly was a joint operation with the other english speaking countries. This allowed them to surveil one another without violating laws; the canadians could do the brits, for example, the aussies to do the americans, etc. And least, it gave a fig leaf of deniability.
But they all sat in the same room with one another and shared what they had.
Just when I thought....I...had...heard...it..all. a new round of craziness debuts.
will they dare sue?
AFAIK, Snowden has promised Russian immigration authorities not to taunt Obama as part of an asylum deal.
Will they deport his sorry behind to Zimbabwe now?
Obamas already toasted...
Only if the lawyers in the millions decide to take him and his cronies down. Then he will be toast.
But there is a disproportionate amount of power with an IRS and NSA with data on everyone. Will there be enough lawsuits with judges to not dismiss them to gum up the NSA with information requests, slowing it down?
Will there be enough lawyers outraged at the loss of international business or sued by companies abroad to take out their anger on the feds, ending the snooping?
There’s potential for lawsuits here, of course, especially if the feds are made to pay. Whether it hurts the Democrats as a whole enough to save the country AND ends the spying is a different matter.
Whether it hurts the Democrats as a whole enough.....”
this is certainly one to keep watching closely.
I know we havent heard the last of this one.
