    He has had a full term to reject Bush's policies. The time for "But Bush....." has come and gone.

    All 3 branches of our government share responsibility. The NSA couldn't get away with this without a judge signing off on it and Congressional approval.

    He can't be come and gone when he is still the commander and chief/president.

    I harbor little sympathy for congressmen who sit on either side of the isle. They have been complicit in this. At least the ones who are read on to such programs.

    none of the previous 43 ever did this, only obama:

    The Washington Post has published a remarkable report showing that the National Security Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been monitoring the central servers of major Internet companies -- Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube and Apple -- and "extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time."

    Why did a government source leak information of this program, dubbed "PRISM," to the Post? What follows is perhaps the most chilling paragraph I've read to date about U.S. government surveillance:

    Firsthand experience with these systems, and horror at their capabilities, is what drove a career intelligence officer to provide PowerPoint slides about PRISM and supporting materials to The Washington Post in order to expose what he believes to be a gross intrusion on privacy. “They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” the officer said.
    Why the gov't source leaked PRISM - POLITICO.com

    uncharted territory, isn't it exciting?

    can you feel the chill up your leg?

    like a cold wind off the lake...

    Here's something for all the panties that just all the sudden caught fire about this:

    "Everyone's been aware of it for years, every member of the Senate," said Sen. Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    Chambliss told reporters that the program has been going on for seven years under the auspices of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. He said he was not aware of a single citizen filing a complaint about it.

    linkypoo...

    Where the hell were you guys when the secret AT&T closet was found and Qwest was found out to be the only phone company to tell the government to go to hell when the gov asked them to turn over their phone call records? Nowhere to be found is where you guys were.

    It's okay because a senator tells us no citizens have filed a complaint. About a secret surveillance program we weren't aware of. That's a rich defense.
