  •  I have read what Wyden has said (1+ / 0-)

    and yes what he says does trouble me but then again given that no one else is saying it I wonder just how well Wyden was doing his job.

      has admitted to having very carefully parsed his words. he wasn't necessarily lying, but he was avoiding telling the truth.

      •  well yes of course (0+ / 0-)

        there are secrets here and there are things that if the government revealed very well could hurt our security.

        I am sorry but there is no such thing as absolute truth in the game of states.

            'questioning' and 'betters,' too, in that other thread?

            We really need to keep that in mind, as well.

          •  you know I am not going to apologize (0+ / 0-)

            for seeing the issue differently then you. Get over yourself, your opinion isn't the only on the issue nor is it the only valid one.

            •  Why so defensive? Laurence didn't imply (0+ / 0-)

              his view was the only one, nor did he demand any apology.

              But you knew that, I think. Or maybe not.

              •  bullshit (0+ / 0-)

                his comment are arrogant and condscending and while he cleverly makes no explcit demands he certainly implies a lot.

                You want to talk? Then let's talk but I am past tired of the arrogance, snideness and condscension from certain people that seem to think that their position justifies whatever behavior they seem fit to adopt.
