  •  What evidence of anything has he provided? (0+ / 0-)

    He's told us about the possible, potential capabilities of the programs, maybe, if someone wanted to the break the law.

    Has he demonstrated, in any way, that abusing the programs are as easy and common as he suggested?  NO.

    Has he demonstrated, in any way, that any analyst could sit there and eavesdrop on anyone, at anytime, as he claimed?  NO.

    Has he demonstrated, in any way, any illegalities, much less any illegalities sanctioned by the administration?  NO.

    No wonder all the Greenwald fan diaries here have shifted to "Oh, yes, it's all legal, and it's been around for a long time, but's it's just WRONG!"

    All Greenwald has done is taken old news, heaped a pile of slanted bullshit on top of it, and gotten everyone to run around in a panic of over-reaction.   Hmmm . . . kind of EXACTLY like the IRS "scandal."

      this NSA thing to the IRS scandal? What's next, Benghazi?

      Seriously. Why are you so invested in this? Why are you fighting this tooth and fucking nail?

      Are you changing any minds? I don't think you are. And yet you persist. Relentlessly.

      Most people would, you know, kind of give up after awhile. Not you though, you're gonna keep on going.

      Good luck.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us. ~ J. Garcia
