Default Administration urges terror surveillance renewal

Man a lot of item I need to read in here. And this is one I did read. I just watch what I say when I talk to my step mopm who lives in Germany. If proof is shown it works then allow it. But if more Americans talking/e-mailing or writing to others overseas than maybe it is time to drop it.

.Administration urges terror surveillance renewal

By PETE YOST | Associated Press – 16 hrs ago. Posted 12 Sept. 2012 ...........



Associated Press/The New York Times, Chang W. Lee - A man fixes an American flag that was fallen from the position during a ceremony marking the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks at the National …more


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration maintains it is unable to say how many times one of the government's most politically sensitive anti-terrorism surveillance programs — which is up for renewal this week on Capitol Hill — has inadvertently gathered intelligence about U.S. citizens.

In a briefing for reporters on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Tuesday that the program designed to monitor international communications by terrorist suspects has collected an extraordinary amount of valuable intelligence overseas about foreign terrorist suspects while simultaneously protecting civil liberties of Americans.

Originated by the George W. Bush administration, the program was publicly disclosed by The New York Times in 2005 and was restructured in 2008 to provide oversight by a secret federal court and with additional oversight from Congress.

Civil liberties groups and some members of Congress have expressed concern that the government may be reviewing the emails and phone calls of law-abiding Americans in the U.S. who are at the other end of communications with foreign terrorist suspects being monitored abroad.

The House began debating renewal of the program Tuesday and expected to vote Wednesday. A hold has been placed on the legislation in the Senate by one of the program's critics, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore.

.............................................. SKIPPED SOME ...........................................

There has never been any intentional effort to bypass restrictions, he added.

At Tuesday's news briefing, reporters repeatedly pressed Litt on how many times there had been incidental collections of intelligence on Americans.

Litt pointed out that the National Security Agency, the ODNI and independent inspectors general for each office have said information is not readily available on the number of instances involving unintentional monitoring of U.S. citizens.

In fact I am for it to continue. As it gives America an insight into the world of our enemies which we need.

Most Americans and many others across the Globe have little idea of what this and the results from it can do.

With 16 top security agecies the foot prints are from one agency mostly, The CIA operators across the globe.

And part of the reason each embassy has part of it's staff the FBI who works with the CIA up to a point. Their main goal is once it lands in any court room so any CIA agent doesn't need to be there and the defense can use them to get their man/woman off because of secrets which the CIA agent has access to.

So I back this even if the average persons freedoms are interrupted for a few moments.

As this has stopped several other large attacks here and aborad.

I had mixed feelings about this when it was first initiated by GW, but the proof is in the pudding. We didn't have a single attack on American soil after 9/11. I was amazed when the Obama Administration kept it in place after the way Obama had railed against it when it was put into effect. I have since realized to never listen to what Obama says. He only speaks for political effect and then does as he pleases.
