  •  Now, THIS disturbs the shit out of me (6+ / 0-)

    I've posted a few comments through the NSA discussions, basically defending the operations.

    If however, the agency is wiretapping military officials, and lawmakers...maybe even potential presidential candidates, then we're treading dangerously into the shit that made J. Edgar Hoover one of the greatest threats to our democracy.  

    If NSA is spying on decisionmakers, that raises major concerns about the purpose of such actions. They certainly couldn't rationally be suspected of aiding terrorists. If true, this is highly suggestive that NSA was trying to uncover dirt it could use to roll over political/military influence policy and maybe even determine elections.
