Skip to comments.Gen. Alexander: NSA Not Spying on Americans’ Calls & Emails
Posted on 03/25/2014 5:52:13 PM PDT by lbryce
Bret Baier sat down with outgoing NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander for an exclusive interview, which aired on this evenings Special Report.
Alexander explained a proposal that would limit the call records that the NSA receives. It would keep call records in the hands of phone companies, and the NSA would only get the data that directly links to a terrorist number.
So this is an approach that I think meets the intent of protecting our civil liberties and privacy and the security of this country, Alexander told Baier.
Baier said that some people think the NSA listens to all calls and reads all emails.
I would get more respect if we could do all that, Alexander said. If you think about all the data thats out there, its wrong. We dont do it not even close.
We dont have Americans emails or their content of their phone calls in that database, its just numbers, its just the call detail records, he said.

His response to Baier's accusation that some people think the NSA listens to all calls and reads all emails, that he'd get more respect if he could do all that doesn't seem to have the sort of righteous indignation to convince anyone otherwise. It's simply a case of him being ordered to now ridicule the NSA's snooping capacity.
And then there's the world class ass, the Plains goober-man, who remains delusional about anything he might have to say, his fear of his presidential knowledge being compromised has him avoiding using email, to instead send letters via the postal service.
Jimmy, you sorry SOB. Before the advent of email or other electronic communication venues, do you really think mail sent via the postal service wasn't compromised. as if your puny letters couldn't be intercepted for the utterly useless information it contained?
Sunday, former President Jimmy Carter said he has taken to writing letters for fear that his emails are being monitored.
Your gov’t is not that into you....
We keep the call recordings and emails in another database.
Snowden skunked you boys. Give it up.
So the latest designated Liar steps up to the plate.
Dear General Alexander,
You’re a liar. Please sue me.
Maybe it’s best if we believe they ARE listening to all our calls, email, texts, etc.
Didn’t the colonials use Committees of Correspondence to keep their activities secret from the Redcoats? British ears (and Tory sympathizers) were everywhere. Not much has changed, huh?
There’s a theory that the US state captures all the UK phone calls and the UK state captures all the US phone calls. Then they just swap, either before or after any analysis. So it’s just hand waved and justified as simply receiving a package of raw or analyzed intelligence from a foreign power, not the state actively spying on their own people.
If they say they are not spying on you, you can be assured that they are. If they said they were spying on you, then you could be assured that they were not.
It's gotten that bad.
Well done, my FRiend.
We do not read any of your e-mails or listen to any of your phone calls, we digitally record everything and store it. Then when something happens or we decide your a problem we can recall anything you have said or anything you have done on the net going back 10 years.
Just a few things stored in Utah.
But we don’t read or listen to any of your e-mails or phone call LOL
Their time and resources would be of much better use spying on the Malaysians.
We dont have Americans emails or their content of their phone calls in that database, its just numbers, its just the call detail records, he said.”
Yeh sure. We believe you General. Snicker.
If its an automated system ‘they” aren’t snooping on you; their computers are.
You’ve gott to really listen and pay attention to what politicians say and what they mean
Poli’s are liars, by definition.
Please translate, I just don’t have the time to do same...
