Last I checked NSA could have prevented 9/11 but they didn't have enough Arabic translators, and only translated important intercepts a few weeks after the attacks. That was before the Patriot Act.

I could be wrong, but I remember that being a pretty big deal. Then we started ramping up Arabic translators at FBI, NSA, etc.

And if the CIA had answered the FBI when they said "here's three guys taking flight classes that the instructor said are acting weird. You know them?"

Dick Cheney is just angling for a way to get plugged in to the mainframe so he never has to die and can continue to fark with all of us.

Predetonating the towers on 9/10 could have prevented 9/11 too.

Reading daily intelligence briefings and not ignoring the groundwork prepared by the outgoing administration could have prevented 9/11 as well.

O'rly? Then why didn't it since it has been going on since the Nixon administration?

kim jong-un: Predetonating the towers on 9/10 could have prevented 9/11 too.


This. With enough surveillance, all crimes are preventable (although the ineptitude of big government is a profound countervailing force). Preventing all crimes is not a big enough benefit to justify the loss of our freedom. Governments abuse power, period.

In a just society, Dick Cheney would be under indictment or serving jail time for his treason.

"If there's a 1% chance that Pakistani scientists are helping al-Qaeda build or develop a nuclear weapon, we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response. It's not about our analysis...It's about our response."

Yes, the NSA has been monitoring cell phones and email since the Nixon administration. Absolutely. Nothing questionable about this fact at all.....

A lot of things could have prevented it.

I bet some of them don't even violate any rights.

If only Dubya hadn't been reading "The Pet Goat', 9/11 might never have happened.

Improving foreign relationships. Background checking. Improve our connections between security agencies. Not sticking our nose into other countries just to show Russia who's boss and play world police. 

Nah none of these could work.

Shut up, Dick.

"I think he's a traitor," Cheney said of Snowden. "I think it's one of the worst occasions, in my memory, of somebody with access to classified information doing enormous damage to the national security interests of the United States."

An authoritarian loves an authoritarian government? Color me shocked!

Next thing you know, they'll be claiming that defense contractors love it when a country is at war.
 
2013-06-16 05:05:58 PM
Dick Cheney no longer has any credibility. I saw the first moments of his interview on Fox this morning and he said "Snowdon is a traitor."

Really, Dick?

Our enemies already know everything the dark agencies are doing. They know everything the above board agencies are doing. They employ millions of people around the world to know what we're up to. And those backwater rag heads? Living under the threat of constant surveillance and anonymous drone strikes, they're up to speed. Who, Dick, do you imagine doesn't know about 24/7 everywhere all the time surveillance?

It's the American citizen who doesn't know ... Dick. That's the only collection of people who don't know. So, how is it 'treason' to let the American citizen know the 4th Amendment is out the window, the blacked out agencies and all their  contractors and all the major internet companies we use ... are not only spying on us, but are actively engaged in  ruiningwhat little credibility the federal government has left?

Dick, you know who's a traitor?

Let's start with the unimaginable amount of taxpayer-monies your .. and I stress  your ... federal thugocracy blows through every year in unlawful, criminal wasteful and just flat out stupid unaccountable spending. That bother you ... Dick?

Then let's move to how the federal apparatus created, funded, trained the very real enemies we fight today. You know who I mean ... Dick.

Then let's move on to, I don't know, let's look around at the witheringly criminal landscape of ... Congress ... Dick.

Special elevators, insurance plans, a pension so generous Caligula rose out of the grave and demanded a share, special limos, special cafeterias, special chefs, special rooms to chat in so the hoi polloi can't bother them, special barbers, special gyms, special masseuses, special travel on our dime, special reserved airplanes, special bodyguards .. geez, Dick ... does any of that bother you?

The list I can bring to bear is fairly extensive but let's leave it at this ...  it really bothers you that the American public, the people who  pay for your pension got to find out  some of the extent to which the US Federal Government considers us, the ones paying for all this, a real and present danger to the Nation? Granny fondled at the airport, sister having her privates inspected, treated like a bloody criminal in any public setting and having cameras on us all the time. That can read facial recognition now at 500 feet. Gait analysis at nearly 100 yards. Listening in on everything we say to one another. Tracking our pads, phones, pods, everything all the time. And you farking dare to call Snowdon a traitor?

Why should I believe you ... Dick? Because you helped craft and implement these programs to make sure the American citizen is viewed as the singular enemy of the State. You ... Dick.

Thanks a lot, pal. I'm truly surprised you haven't burst into flames from the staggering hypocrisy ...

Wow! If I had only know that the test for good policy was "Would it have prevented 9/11?" Imagine all the fun laws we could propose!

Handcuffing and sedating everyone using mass transit? Passes!
Shooting down any plane that deviates off course even a small bit? Sure thing!
Jailing anyone that might even have a small hint of being foreign? Ayup.
Killing anyone that any agency finds even remotely suspicious? No 9/11 here!

Wow, this is so  easy!

Good to know that saving a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the citizens' lives is worth eviscerating everything the country was founded on.
