Is it possible that the Terrorist A-Holes are having a little fun with the United States?
Is it possible that they set out to determine the extent of which their lines of communication have been compromised?
The latest alert the public has been given which basically states “There could be a Terrorist attack, Somewhere at Sometime… we think, because they sure are talking a lot.” is as absurd as it sounds.
Of course there could be a Terrorist attack somewhere at sometime. This is always the case.
Nothing New Here.
Or is this an all out effort to save the NSA Domestic Spying program?
Might be both.
This Administration is desperately trying to tie the Domestic Spying Program together with our spying efforts abroad.
They are not connected.
They want you to believe terminating one spells doom for the entire program.
It does not.
The fact that having supercomputers read, and listen, to every electronic communication made by Innocent Americans is unconstitutional seems to escape far to many us. The added fact that all of your communications are being archived, just in case the Government decides you’ve done something wrong (like voting for the wrong party? Not donating enough to the right one? Saying something out loud which is just mean? Starting a group that teaches people about the Constitution… oh, wait… they’re already doping that.) also seems to lack the frightening impact it should have.
Now we are learning that practically every agency has used this information.
It is being received with yawns… and trial coverage of people who deserve nothing more than being ignored and forgotten, guilty or innocent.
This is just a thought piece.
I simply can’t explain how we have gone from proper outrage at such a discovery to acceptance to acquiescence in a few short weeks.
Scary… all of it.
