The Patriot Act, NSA, and Homeland Security didn't come into creation 2 years ago. Thus simply pointing out an assertion we're less safe than we were 2 years ago in no way, shape, or form indicates that it's in spite of those things you posted. Rather, there's as much of an argument to be made that it would be worse if those things were removed as there is to suggest that they've simply been a "waste of money".
At the very least, one would need to look at the situation prior to their creation and post their creation to even get something CLOSE to a reasonable amount of evidence to make a claim such as you made.
Furthermore, there's plenty of supporting evidence that a counter position could point at to suggest that it was actually attempts to undermine some of those things...such as the various leaks regarding the NSA...that has helped to lead to such problems rather than them itself.
The stories an interesting one and worthy of conversation. Your immensely ridiculous, unsubstantiated, stereotypical response in relation to the story is however worthy only of condemnation and ridicule for it's incredibly lack of substance.
What I find rather interesting here is Feinstein's stance and even focused conversation regarding extremist islamic Jihad, and that there was clear agreement between both Roger's and Feinstein.
