So now they are worried about privacy.
Will Mr. Brennan be apologizing to the American people as well?
don't be silly, the subjects don't count.
Right. "Oh, we hacked Congress' computers, oopsy."
"We infiltrated the private communications of millions of Americans, pfffttt."
Keep in mind that this is the same bunch who deleted videos showing the use of torture, so we shouldn't be surprised that the agency is full of liars and brigands.
It was pretty funny to see how angry Dianne Feinstein was that her computer was searched, while she simultaneously was defending the NSA's spying and even introducing bills to strengthen it.
Of course, Feinstein is rabidly anti gun and yet has/had a concealed carry permit while simultaneously introducing gun bans, so she has a history of not being interested in following the draconian legislation she rams onto the peasantry.
NSA and CIA are completely different entities with different missions and different limitations on what they can do.
They are both spy agencies.
Considering that Mr. Brennan was loudly proclaiming that this wasn't going on just a few months ago, I hope the government realizes that their assurances are meaningless. One of the arguments against these sorts of programs is that rogue employees could use the techniques and data for their own personal uses. If the director can't even keep his employees under control when there's official policy (supposedly) and targets that are clearly very sensitive, what assurance do regular citizens have?
I'm told they put out a commercial addressing this particular incident. Start video at 12 seconds.
But they are different agencies and thus it isnt really surprising that one can support one spy agency doing what the law allows them to do, and condemn another one when they do something that they are not allowed to do.
I have never heard Dianne Feinstein state that she is opposed to spying in general.
Please note if this is how many Americans think, is it not surprising that most foreigners think the same way.
Why ya mad Bro'???
Geeezz, We said we were sorry.
What's worse than the CIA spying on elected representatives? The fact that the DOJ is fine with their explanation.
Erm... somebody is being internally 'disciplined'? Shouldn't the result in outright prosecution?
Of course not. He only apologized to the illuminati, the proles can get bent.
Please, hardly anyone in government is ever held accountable for their actions. Internally disciplined is code for promoted and moved to a different department.
