"The Department of Defense does not conduct electronic or physical surveillance of journalists,"

Of course not. It's the NSA that does that. Duh.

I don't care if other people know my wife's underwear is hot, just as long as there is no VPL. Truly a scourge upon our great society.

"Journos"?

Is that the Greek word for "journalist"?

Please stop this NOW!
 
2012-09-10 09:58:52 AM
The party's over, people. Since you bent over and said "Put 'er there" after 9/11 - our own government blowing up its own citizens, in order to start a "war" with Iraq, an innocent country - and didn't demand their prosecution, the freaks behind the scenes now feel they can do anything they want to you. And the media is "happily" complicit.

Thanks!

You could always start asking questions now...
 
2012-09-10 10:00:35 AM
Right, like today's "journalists" are any threat to the government. Hell after 9/11, they were nothing more than unpaid cheerleaders for the Department of Defense and that was 10 years ago. Have you seen the crap they report lately?

It's a legal definition thing, kind of like how Lunchables have to call their cheese "Cheese Food" instead of actual cheese. They're not actual journalists, they're "journos".

Just how far up their own ass are journalists to think that the Pentagon has time and people to waste spying on them?

Or are they just retarded and couldn't parse "monitor national media reporting" to mean, you know, watching TV and reading the news to see if classified stuff is in there.

CSB-
Before my brother completely lost his mind and ended up in prison for murder after being homeless for 6 years, we were sitting in his apartment smoking a jay reading the bible when he just said out of the blue "The FBI is tapping my phone and the black helicopters you see flying around are them spying on me".

I told him "Lil Brother, I think you've lost your mind.... Everyone KNOWS it's the CIA that flies the black helicopters...."

I don't think I helped the situation... 

End CSB

I wonder how many conspiracy theorists who want it to be true that the gub'mint is spying on everyone are going to look at that "The Department of Defense does not conduct electronic or physical surveillance of journalists" and go "Oh yeah? I don't believe you! So prove it!"

It's just gonna get worse.

Do you want to be the president who has to go on tv and explain to the american people that we could have prevented that nuclear explosion in downtown (fill in the blank), but we didn't want to violate anybody's right to privacy?

Besides, try explaining the concept of "privacy" to anybody under 30. They won't have any idea what you are talking about.

It was nice while it lasted.

Do you deny the well-documented fact that Anwar al-Aulaqi was a US citizen?

Do you deny the well-documented fact that he was summarily executed without due process (not even a trial in absentia)?

Yes, he was a scumball terrorist and a traitor. One of the key features of our government is that everyone accused of a crime - regardless of what that crime is or how guilty they are - gets their day in court.

This is the kind of bullshiat 3rd world dictatorships pull. The US government is explicitly prohibited from doing this by it's highest law.

from your link-
The NSA has become the largest, most covert, and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever.

That could've been said every year since it's inception -

Face it, we live in a police state. Birth to death. Just like we were warned about in the anti-communist literature from the government in the late 1950's and all through the '60's.
Our corporations enrich communist regimes, our government surveils us at will. A tart from New Jersey is famous while brilliant men and women toil in obscurity. Life is crap. Where's that bourbon . . .

It's a lot more than just Facebook

They don't get it. Posting every detail of your life on FB or some such is common practice with them.

Yes, the comments below TFA were derptastic.

Ya, It's a pretty messed up situation. I tried to help him by getting him to a rehab (I would pay), but he not so politely declined, I couldn't have him declared mentally incompetent and get him help that way, and his decline was/is really sad. To my knowledge, he is getting psychotic (anti-psychotic?) treatment and has come back to himself. I believe he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and active homicidal ideation. I only hope he stays on his meds IF he ever gets paroled.

He has shown genuine remorse for his crime and seems to be stabilizing.

I REALLY miss my little brother and the man he was......

Old news. The DoD doesn't have to worry; the FBI has that covered.

/FBI tapped our home phone when I was a kid. Dad was an editor for a defense-related sci/tech publication and he had a lot of connections at the pentagon. We kids used to have a lot of fun. Didn't do what George Carlin did, though

You need to learn the difference between "communist" and "authoritarian".
 
2012-09-10 11:03:20 AM
Yeah, there are literally like, 4 Communist countries left in the world.

China shouldnt even count on that list. Technically North Korea is "juche", and Vietnam is opening market reforms.

Its hard to find a good traditional Communist country these days.

The US government announced after 9/11 that it would endeavor to monitor all US phone calls and email transmissions. But you're right: the US government is not spying on US citizens.

What's funny is Uncle Sam doesn't even need to spy on most people these days, they're more than happy to volunteer their private information to Facebook, Google, a few years ago MySpace...

People pissing and moaning about this really do not understand that in many ways the concept of privacy is becoming more and more obsolete each day, and it's not just the Big Bad Brother driving this or routing for this either. We do this to each other, and to ourselves.

The NSA was already doing this for years before 9/11, the government finally fessed up basically. Thing is we're talking about billions of phone calls and emails a day, it's impossible to have someone monitoring every single one of these.

The FBI was thought to have that covered, and then came 9/11. Now I think that the Organs of State Security are trying to cover all bases.
