    Obama Administration Releasing New Rules To Expand Ability To Hold Citizens' Data

    The U.S. intelligence community will now be able to store information about Americans with no ties to terrorism for up to five years under new Obama administration guidelines.Until now, the National Counterterrorism Center had to immediately destroy information about Americans that was already stored in other government databases when there were no clear ties to terrorism.Giving the NCTC expanded record-retention authority had been called for by members of Congress who said the intelligence community did not connect strands of intelligence held by multiple agencies leading up to the failed bombing attempt on a Detroit-bound airliner on Christmas 2009."Following the failed terrorist attack in December 2009, representatives of the counterterrorism community concluded it is vital for NCTC to be provided with a variety of datasets from various agencies that contain terrorism information," Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a statement late Thursday. "The ability to search against these datasets for up to five years on a continuing basis as these updated guidelines permit will enable NCTC to accomplish its mission more practically and effectively."

    Seems like a search and seizure violation to me.

    I didn't vote for him.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Don't worry TheDemSocialist, it's Obama's database and your a socialist, so you won't be in it. He wouldn't do that to a comrade. However, if you ever said anything nice about Sarah Palin or voted Republican, then keep an eye out for strange cars parked on your block.

    Ok, serious now, why 5 years, the information on that kid was new, not that old. And is this trying to tell us that they still need 5 years to actually talk to each other?

    Sad that left or right doesn't really matter when it comes to abridging civil rights. Both sides do it and show no signs of stopping.

    He doesn't want to legislate away rights, just produce the practical position where rights go to the highest bidder.

    The reason I respect you is because you jumped all over the Bush administration for crap like this, when many Bush supporters defended him for no other reason than because he is a Republican. Yes, Republicans defended Bush, and what do we have now? Obama, who is Bush on steroids. Back when Bush was doing it, I said it was a long slippery slope from there. Well, meet that slope, folks. It is happening, just as I predicted it would 6 years ago. This is a damn good reason that, no matter who we are in the political spectrum, we should always call a president out when he breaks the law, and this is exactly what Obama is doing. We can't do anything about Bush's abuse of power, since he is no longer in office, but we can still draw the line, before it is too late. I say we draw it here, and we draw it now. We cannot allow this administration to continue to willfully disobey the Constitution of the United States of America.
