    Oh, please, ohpleaseohpleaseohplease... for once in the last 15 years, I hope the Cretinous Congress Critters don't quibble about disclosing the "black budget" money.

    It is OUR tax dollars that are funding their illegal and unconstitutional actions, after all (which makes me feel embarrassed and ashamed to call myself an American because of the illegal and unconstitutional actions of our politicians).

    We need full disclosure on all of that information..., or we need to elect new senators and representatives who will give us our rights back and abide by their oaths of office.

    Good catch, and thanks for sharing the info!

    •  journalists attack Snowden - but black budget (6+ / 0-)

      as noted above the WA Post article used Snowden documents to expose the black budgets

      is this a legitimate story?

      my comment was inspired by some tweets from Glenn you know who

      he now has over 310,000 followers

      by contrast, daily kos has less than 150,00 followers

      that may be an unfair comparison. But when glenn started publishing his stories 7 months ago he has gone from something like 130,000 followers to the current number and it continues to grow. In the same time period, DK has been constant.

      This may be an unfair comparison. The Snowden story is the biggest political story of my lifetime and Glenn is in the middle of it. On the other hand, DK twitter had a several year lead time to get up to the stable number that it has. I don't follow DK twitter, I just go there to check up on its numbers.

      Many journalists attacking specific NSA stories as reckless are too cowardly to attack NYT or WP for publishing them, so they attack Snowden

      .@onekade Look at how some journalists sound like Joe McCarthy now when they discuss newspaper articles & sources https://twitter.com/...

      here is the tweet linked

      Both Russia and China, those bastions of freedom and respect for the individual, are even more in Mr. Snowden's debt today.

        ...might be also affected by people who follow individual front pagers and certain diarists, like I do. I don't follow the actual DK twitter feed. Anyone else do that?
