    I realize that looks really stupid when you type it out.

    But you realize you're calling it "lobbying" because you don't like it (and I'm not saying it isn't lobbying) and they would certainly say it's an update on the country's actual security because they do like it.

    Too Folk For You. - Schmidting in the Punch Bowl - verb - Committing an unexpected and underhanded political act intended to "spoil the party."

      there's no new info here about threats to the country--this is clearly being done as a response to Congress proposing a policy change. It's not b/c something new happened in Yemen or they've discovered some odd new hacking threat, or something. It's clearly because of this proposed change to 215.

      So if they want to convince Congress not to change policy, they can lobby out in the open about how they shouldn't change policy, just like every other stakeholder does on every other issue.
