Clearly this was Obama's fault.

I don't know to feel elated or deflated that I'm not getting tapped....

/except by subby's mum

WTF Indeed: Clearly this was Obama's fault.


Oh no, he knew nothing about any of this NSA stuff, nothing.

Because you're so boring.

I'm not sure why I am supposed to be outraged by this.  But I am.
Outrageously so.
 
2014-02-05 10:10:55 AM  
But at least they say that they are not doing industrial espionage. And I think their word still means something over here...

Anyone tapping my phone will soon kill themselves out of pure boredom.

Oh noes!  if they taped my phone, they'll have hundreds of conversations that go "yeah, I would like to order a steak burrito".
 
2014-02-05 11:56:53 AM  
That is okay they tapped my ass.

Seems relevant......

This style seems wild
Wait before you treat me like a stepchild
Let me tell you why they got me on file
'Cause I give you what you lack
Come right and exact
Our status is the saddest
So I care where you at, black
And at home, I got a call from Tony Rome
The FBI was tappin' my telephone
I never live alone, I never walk alone
My posses always ready and they're waitin' in my zone
Although I live the life that of a resident
But I be knowin' the scheme that of the president
Tappin' my phone whose crews abused
I stand accused of doin' harm
'Cause I'm louder than a bomb

I am a rock hard trooper
To the bone, the bone, the bone
Full grown, consider me stone
Once again and I say it for you to know
The troop is always ready, I yell Geronimo
You CIA, you see I ain't kiddin'
Both King and X they got ridda' both
A story untold, true but unknown
Professor Griff knows, Jo, I ain't no toast and
And not the braggin' or boastin' and plus
It ain't no secret why they're tappin' my phone
Although I can't keep it a secret
So I decided to kick it, yo
And yes, it weighs a ton
I say it once again
I'm called the enemy, I'll never be a friend
Of those with closed minds they know that I'm rapid
The way that I rap it
Is makin' 'em tap it, yeah
Never servin' 'em well 'cause I'm an un-Tom
It's no secret at all
'Cause I'm louder than a bomb

Cold holdin' the load
The burden breakin' the mold
I ain't lyin', denyin', 'cause they're checkin' my code
Am I buggin'? 'Cause they're buggin' my phone for information
No tellin' who's sellin' out, power buildin' the nation so
Joinin' the set, the point blank target
Every brother's inside, so least not, you forget, no
Takin' the blame is not a waste, here taste
A bit of the song so you can never be wrong
Just a bit of advice, 'cause we be payin' the price
'Cause every brother mans life
Is like swingin' the dice, right?
Here it is, once again this is
The brother, the brother, the terminator, the cover
Goin' on an' on, leave alone the grown
Get it straight in 88, I'll troop it to demonstrate
The posse always ready, 98 at 98
My posse come quick, because my posse got velocity
Tappin' my phone, never leave me alone
I'm even lethal when I'm unarmed
'Cause I'm louder than a bomb
'Cause the D is for dangerous
You can come and get some of this
I teach and speak so when it's spoke, it's no joke
The voice of choice, the place shakes with bass
Called one for the treble
The rhythm is the rebel
Here's a funky rhyme that they're tappin' on
Just thinkin,' I'm breakin' the beats
I'm rappin' on CIA, FBI
All they tell us is lies
When I say it they get alarmed
'Cause I'm louder than a bomb

Why the fark didn't they use this information they gained then?

Oh right. they already knew the whole build up to the was a lie, they just wanted to figure who they could bully, since Germany weren't moveable.

In 2004? The article clearly says that his phone was tapped after he opposed the Iraq invasion.
 
2014-02-05 01:41:09 PM  
well, we DO need to know what the Nazis are up to.  they were a real problem in the 40's you know.  Duh!
 
2014-02-05 01:41:57 PM  
they can tap my phone all they want. but they'll never get into my Linux router or my Linux desktop.   ((::

I have nothing to hide and nothing to worry about. And honestly, it's not like you have a right to privacy on your phone anyway. The towers belong to the telecoms, the airwaves belong to the FCC, and you're supposed to broadcast you info to a third party anyway with you communications anyway so you have no expectation of privacy. This kind of monitoring isn't new and keeps us safe against terrorists and foreign interests.

Why should I care that an American intelligence agency tapped the phone of a foreign head of state?  That's their farking job.
