    it, its classified.(so why talk about what you can't talk about?) etc.

    Watching the Sunday talk shows on 3 networks, all with their talking points in hand, saying  Snowden Bad.....

    “Every single member on the committees received campaign contributions from the largest intelligence companies in the US performing services for the government"

    “Amid the NSA scandal, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence — the committees in charge of oversight — denied stricter reform attempts to the NSA programs and instead propelled legislation aimed at restoring their trust,” John Schoffstall of the Capitol City Project remarked after seeing Shaw’s report.

    “The committees are intended to keep waste, fraud and abuse in check given most of these programs are hidden from the general public,” Schoffstall continued.
      Despite this, however, “Every single member on the committees received campaign contributions from the largest intelligence companies in the US performing services for the government,” he said.

    For our fallen solders who come home from Afghanistan to Dover AF mortuary, "God bless the cause of "The Good War" for which they died" - As if any war can be called Good in its 13th year, America's longest war.
