    This one is priceless.

    Thank God/whomever, for foolish young people. They may save us yet.

    Awesome soundtrack. I would hire these kids in a minute.

      She was FEARLESS! And so were her peers!

      Just read the the depth of her questions and the way she delivered them. So to-the-point. So forceful. She DEMANDED answers.

      It's sooo refreshing. That's why I had to write about it. Can you imagine having [actual] journalists like her at a White House Press Briefing? On Meet the Freakin' Press?

      She's going to be the next Michael Hastings... or Jeremy Scahill... or perhaps even the female version of Jack Anderson for her generation.

      Come'on! It don't get no better...

      Tahir: "So is this job for liars? Is this what you're saying? Because, clearly, you're not able to give us forthright answers. I mean, given the way the NSA has behaved, given the fact that we've been lied to as Americans, given the fact that factsheets have been pulled down because they clearly had untruths in them, given the fact that Clapper and Alexander lied to Congress – is that a qualification for being in the NSA? Do you have to be a good liar?"
      (remembering of course that she's asking these questions of uniformed men who could probably ruin her life with just one phone call)

      Please visit her Blog and give her some encouragement.

      (minus the word "foolish" HAHA).

      My son has some Paulite friends. I tell them to watch Rachel's interview with the younger Paul re: the Civil Rights Act, if they really want to know where these guys are coming from - they are usually surprised, unpleasantly. I also tell them get on the internet, and look up their favored candidates (any of them) to see what their positions are now, and 5 years ago, and 10 or 20 years ago, for a full picture.

      I tell them to vote (some I have actually sat down at the computer to register), and that it is going to be up to them to set things right. I also tell them keep paying attention.

      I'm sooo glad those college kids gave the NSA recruiters what for - good job!!!


      Thank you, President Obama and Vice President Biden!
