  •  And another thing!!! Your sainted Mr. Risen also (0+ / 0-)

    says, on April 1 in the NY Times:

    But since Mr. Obama took office, the N.S.A. has sometimes violated the limits imposed on spying on Americans by the new FISA law. The administration has acknowledged the lapses but said they had been corrected.

    Let me help you here - Risen does NOT say the Obama Administration has stopped warrantless wiretapping.  Rather he says they HAVE violated the law since Obama took office, but they CLAIM they no longer do.

    Maybe a remedial reading course would help.

    •  Can't you read and understand this very article?? (0+ / 0-)

      The article is saying that since Obama took office, Holder discovered NSA programs that violated the limits imposed by FISA AND SHUT THEM DOWN OR FORCED THEM TO COMPLY WITH FISA.  The article by Risen is about that process -- the Obama administration coming in and reviewing these programs and forcing them to comply.

      Or did you think that the inauguration simply caused all these violations to magically disappear and free ponies to be delivered to all?

      Did you bother to read the article you're citing?

      Can you read?

        Where in this article does it mention Holder shutting down any programs? Where does it mention anyone forcing compliance?
