When it says Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act it's really just the meaning of the word as used in the Patriotic® South -- meaning anyone across state lines, not just those countries Sarah Palin can see from her house (can meth really do that?).

Unless, of course, all US citizens are considered to be foreign, then the title would make perfect sense and FISA courts would make sense and be redundant and expensive.

Washington DC is technically not a state right?  So basically anyone outside of DC could be considered a foreigner...

"Cohen conceded many lawmakers had failed to attend classified briefings in previous years where they could have learned more. "

I want their names, before or after their heads.

I'm confuzzled, if the gov't is watching all these supposed terrorists, like they did back under the Bush administration, Clinton administration and older, and that didn't stop the attacks on Sept. 11, or the Boston marathon, or OKC bombing, or....
What I'm saying is if they are monitoring these things they are doing a really crappy job of determining the real terrorists from the supposed ones. And we all know this has been going on for a lot longer than anyone really wants to admit. It just seems to me that the gov't has failed so many more times than we seem to reall care about.

Clapper said he "responded in what I thought was the most truthful or least most untruthful manner, by saying, `No,"' because the program was classified.

Eat your heart out, Bill Clinton, whatever "is" is.

How about, "With all respect, Senator, I cannot reveal that classified info in public?"

I LOVE this new "scandal". The right seems to be completely confused as to what to do with it. This is going to be very amusing.

Chiquidin: Sept. 11, or the Boston marathon, or OKC bombing,


The warnings were ignored in the first two incidents.

here to help: The warnings were ignored in the first two incidents.


Not entirely, Russian Intelligence dropped the ball for the Boston thing. They asked us to follow up, we did and asked why are we following up we got nothing on the initial investigation? They then never replied back leaving us in the dark so they dropped off the radar.

parade of FBI and intelligence officials who briefed the entire House

Is that normal? A hearing by the whole House seems like a big deal.

Precisely my point! If they are going to ignore them...whatsit he point of tapping all the records they can,they won't do anything anyway, because they have shown that they pay so much more attention to the CIA having hookers in Rio, or parties in Vegas, or some other stupid shiz like that.

//really fire all of the gov't and start over.

Here is what subby is trying to make a funny about:

"Back at an open congressional hearing on March 12, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) ,"Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" Clapper replied, "No sir ... not wittingly." As we all now know, he was lying.

We also now know that Clapper  knew he was lying. In an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell that aired this past Sunday, Clapper was asked why he answered Wyden the way he did. He replied:

"I thought, though in retrospect, I was asked [a] 'when are you going to ... stop beating your wife' kind of question, which is ... not answerable necessarily by a simple yes or no. So I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful, manner by saying, 'No.' "

It is irrelevant whether Clapper really believes his definition of "collect" or made it up on the spot. Either way, this is a man who cannot be trusted to hold an honest discussion about these issues. If he lied about what he thinks "collect" means, he will lie about lots of things. If he really thinks the English language is this flexible, it is unwise to assume that any statement he makes means what it appears to mean."


----------------------
What's amazing is that the NSA director was given the questions he would be asked 24 hours ahead of his testimony to Congress, and he still decided that to say this straight up lie - sorry, give the least untruthful answer.

"The American people have the right to expect straight answers from the intelligence leadership to the questions asked by their representatives," Wyden said.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I'm all for open debate on this topic. The government hasn't done anything illegal, but as John Oliver pointed out, that's the problem. Is terrorism such a threat that we need to cede this level of snooping? Considering tens of thousands of people are murdered in criminal acts each year, as opposed to an average of less than 100 a year from terrorism over the past forty years (less than 10 if you'd just locked the cockpit doors), I think this is unnecessary. Yeah, it might lead to more successful terrorist attacks that might have been stopped. No, those are not that big a deal.

I'd be interested to see a public opinion poll on this. I still think Americans are more afraid of terrorists than they are of government overreach. I'm basing that on George Bush getting reelected.

That's actually an operational security violation, to publicly discuss whether a secret program is secret or not. Kind of gives away the secret. That bit of congressional grandstanding shouldn't have been allowed to happen; that's why they have classified briefings. It's a bit of a problem, in that secrecy laws are enforced by the executive branch, and Congress can't unilaterally declassify stuff.

He told a lie, but it was pretty close to the truth. The true answer is, "Yeah, we hoover up ALL communications traffic, but we don't wittingly drill down to see what American citizens are up to. We might do it inadvertently, because we can't really determine who's a foreigner or not with any accuracy, but we're not TRYING to spy on Americans."

So you could say "Not wittingly," could fit that answer, if you were really trying to contort yourself to justify his answer.

What anyone has failed to point out is there is an easy answer to this had congress and the courts bothered to try to protect peoples rights.  Change the requirements from the telcoms to replace phone numbers, names etc in what they turn over with unique IDs excluding international numbers before they're handed over.  NSA could still do their analysts of who's calling who and when necessary get a court order to reveal the phone number behind the unique ID.  That way they at least have to show some probably cause before they got to court.

"The ACLU is claiming standing as a customer of Verizon, which was identified last week as the phone company the government had ordered to turn over daily records of calls made by all its customers."

The whole point is right there.
They will be silenced sooner or later.

So, Wyden is on the Senate Intelligence Committee.  Wyden knows about the program.  Clapper knows that Wyden knows about the program.  Wyden and Clapper both know that he can't answer the question.  Since he had a the question a day earlier, could he not have picked up the farking phone?

You guys call the House a bunch of f#ckwits, which they are.  The senate is a Clown Show.
