    means exactly that. In this case I am an NSA critic. Sometimes you have to call things as they are.

    Yes I made note in the diary that it was a different administration. Just because it happened 11 years ago does not mean we should not know more, and what other events and cities this took place in.

    Just because programs and their names have changed, does not mean that there are not new rationalizations for carrying out the same techniques. The veil of secrecy and selective leaking by the current administration only furthers distrust.

      It's the equivalent of asking "how long ago did you stop beating your wife." There are many ways to deal with the problems of NSA over-reach. Demonizing the President is one of them. Analyzing the data would be another. I'm a critic of the NSA too, I state that categorically. Now which ghetto do you want to put me in?

        Now youre just being absurd. Im a critic of the NSA, and the presidents policy on the NSA and surveillance. Im with him on most everything else and have been a big supporter as my diary history would show.

      •  Yeah, you're a real "critic." (1+ / 0-)

        So much in fact, you're bothered by the the fact the diary used the descriptive term "defender." Those of us who've been regulars in these diaries know that you're not exactly outspoken in your criticism of these programs/policies. You are now, though, all of the sudden.

        The "demonizing the President" part of your comment makes me think there's more to your complaint than the use of the word "defender."

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