NSA director admits to misleading public on terror plots


quote:

In so many words, NSA director Keith Alexander admitted Wednesday that the Obama administration had issued misleading information about terror plots and their foiling to bolster support for the government’s vast surveillance apparatus.

During Wednesday’s hearing, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy pushed Alexander to admit that plot numbers had been fudged in a revealing interchange:

“There is no evidence that [bulk] phone records collection helped to thwart dozens or even several terrorist plots,” said Leahy. The Vermont Democrat then asked the NSA chief to admit that only 13 out of a previously cited 54 cases of foiled plots were genuinely the fruits of the government’s vast dragnet surveillance systems:

“These weren’t all plots, and they weren’t all foiled,” Leahy said, asking Alexander, “Would you agree with that, yes or no?”

“Yes,” replied Alexander.

Proof positive of what many of us have long posited: that under the flimsy guise of a targeted War on Terror, the surveillance state has established itself with little regard for an honest relationship with the American public.

I'm shocked.

Always been suspicious of these "threats" that are thwarted because of these efforts.

I keep thinking of Harry Reid's big lie "I happen to know that Mitt Romney didn't pay ANY income taxes".
You know that they are full of it.

God bless them. The NSA has done more for the libertarian movement than anyone else in the last half century.

Clapper and Alexander can hit the road. Both lied in testimony a few months ago. He is finally telling the truth.
