    Re: Senator presses NSA to reveal whether it spies on members of Congress

    Update:
    NSA Response To Senator Sanders
    Washington (CNN) - Congress is just like everyone else. That's the message the National Security Agency has for Sen. Bernie Sanders.

    The independent senator from Vermont sent a letter to the agency Friday, asking whether it has or is "spying" on members of Congress and other elected American officials.

    The NSA provided a preliminary response Saturday that said Congress has "the same privacy protections as all U.S. persons."

    "NSA's authorities to collect signals intelligence data include procedures that protect the privacy of U.S. persons. Such protections are built into and cut across the entire process. Members of Congress have the same privacy protections as all U.S. persons," said the agency in a statement obtained by CNN.

    The response goes on to promise the agency will continue to work with Congress on the issues - without ever addressing the senator's real question.

    So you support NSA's domestic spying?

    Yet the NYT is also in the same boat as Snowden in leaking confidential and walking the very tight rope.
    I agree with Peter King's assessment of the NYT with snowden.

    And find it rich that anti-NSAers think they are the only ones who opposed the Iraqi war.
    I didn't hear any of that last decade .

    Nor should the NSA--never has, never will.
    Sanders is a joke on this issue and should move to Quebec where his Corporate wind-mill Masters live .

    Anti-NSAers are now saying that Pro-NSAers supported the Iraqi war.
    Just a little more dishonest spin from the Paul-bots .
