And Obama's administration stands as the best object to for reseaching the problem. Or would you like to turn a blind eye on it and hope Trump or his successors do not misuse the obvious power that seems to be poorly balanced and not checked?
Hoever, Obama's behavior is only an example of the wider problem of the implications data collection and muning tecnologies have. After looking at the Snowden case and deciding tentatively that the cases his data seemed to portray were had not been a great danger to American citizens, I had been following the development from an interest in the Gerasimov Doctrine and its implications for our type of democracy. And here a can is opened whose quality of worms is of a totally fresh quality. This is because we need our government to know and we need to know at a level of detail unheard of that only a few years ago was technically impossible. The technological challenge, as daunting as it might be is dwarved by that of finding political systems and societal instruments to deal with this new quality of information availability.
This has little to do with Obama except that he seems the best place to start our investigation and research into the dangers we face and how to structure ourselves to be able to use the new technological power without losing our democracy.
But this concerns all successor administrations and the way we build a system of checks and balances to handle the developing situation.
Chemists Have Solutions .
Looks like we'll have to depend on the foreign press to ask trump REAL NEWS QUESTIONS, now that Bannon/Miller have completed their censorship of trump's pressers .
Chemists Have Solutions .
Prior to Levin's broadcast an article at the Free Beacon reported that former Obama officials, loyalists planted series of stories to discredit Flynn because they wanted to protect the secret deals hidden in the Iran deal and Flynn wanted them exposed to the public.
Former Obama Officials, Loyalists Waged Secret Campaign to Oust Flynn
I have read the Washington Free Beacon for years and find it to be credible source for information.
Today on the heels of President Trump welcoming Netanyahu and speaking out once again how bad the Iran deal is in the presser, another article is posted that ties into what Levin was speaking about last night and the Beacon's previous reporting.
Iran Warns Trump Against Disclosing Secret Iran Deal Documents
Iran is warning Trump not to release all the side deals the Obama administration made with Iran.
Iran Warns Trump Against Disclosing Secret Iran Deal DocumentsRep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), a vocal opponent of the Iran deal who has long been fighting for the full disclosure of the Iran deal documents, told the Free Beacon that the Obama administration hid these documents in order to mislead Americans about the true nature of the agreement.
"The administration is under no obligation to conceal information about secret side deals, nor should they feel obligated to protect the anonymity of individuals or institutions who misbehaved at the behest of the Obama administration," Roskam said.
Included in these documents are details of multiple, secret payments to Iran that totaled close to $2 billion. The money is believed to have been part of an incentive package aimed at securing the release last year of several American hostages in Iran.
None of this information is technically classified, yet it remains hidden from the American public and a large portion of Congress.
"The deal has only survived this long because the Obama administration gave Iran secret exemptions to cheat," said one veteran congressional adviser familiar with the documents. "The Iranians know that if people found out about those exemptions, it would be obvious that the deal was always a bad, unsustainable deal, and they couldn't blame Trump. That's why they're making up reasons why parts of the deal should be kept secret."
So what did Obama know and when did he know it?
