    like 50 attacks. That is a long way from declassifying the details. So far its all spin to justify their secrecy.

    Your requirements for a smoking gun are far far more demanding than mine.

    •  well that's how it is for me (0+ / 0-)

      I tend to withhold judgement until it is indisputable

    •  Right. Why not 5,000 attacks? Or 4? (0+ / 0-)

      Since it's all secret, even from the rubber stampers on the FISA court, pick a random number.

      Honestly, I don't understand why you "foil plots" and then claim that information is super-secret.

      I think if you want to discourage your Global Terist Enemies, you would be demonstrating over and over again in public and in detail that they will get nabbed.

      By NSA logic, Bin Laden would be dead and we would not have said a word to anyone.

      This begins to remind me of Elizabethan England.

      Thump! Bang. Whack-boing. It's dub!
