Here we go with Feinstein wanting to imprison anyone who dares criticizes her NSA. Will this be used as justification to invade Europe now? It would be a major understatement to say that the NSA had a bad week and Feinstein stuck her insane rantings square in the middle of this insane nonsense. First came the news that the NSA spied on millions of French phone calls and texts. From there, it was just downhill as the week grew worse by the minute. It came out that the NSA had tapped the cell phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel for more than ten years prompting her to call Obama herself. Then came the revelation that the NSA had monitored the phones of at least 35 world leaders as reported by the Guardian
. This has destroyed the image of America as the leader of the “free world”. This crisis in confidence demonstrates that politicians simply NEVER
are capable to taking responsibility for anything even when they publicly endorse it.
Using an NSA document provided by patriot Edward Snowden who clearly deserves the medal of honor, the Guardian reported that the U.S. spy agency snooped on foreign leaders’ phone conversations after obtaining the numbers from officials within the Executive Branch, including the White House, the State Department, and the Pentagon. The NSA was given more than 200 numbers, including those of the 35 world leaders, none of whom are terrorists. The NSA memo revealed by Snowden produced in 2006, also suggested that such surveillance was routine! They even admitted that it had produced “little reportable intelligence.”
There is nobody in charge here and the NSA has run amok jeopardizing everything the USA once stood for. Worst yet, Obama and Feinstein dig in their heels rather than warn the NSA that they have left the reservation.
