Newly declassified documents released on post-9/11 surveillance

The Obama administration has released more once-secret national security documents, this time detailing the origins of increased electronic surveillance to collect foreign intelligence in the months after the 9/11 attacks.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Saturday in a statement that the material shows that President George W. Bush authorized spy agencies to collect contents of some overseas communications, as well as the bulk collection of domestic phone calls and e-mail metadata.

      Why would you want a narcissist high-school dropout, who had absolutely no training in the intelligence discipline, assist you in promulgating your delusions and conspiracy theory?

    Lies, hyporicy and deception are the bread and butter of the US, Britain, and Israel.

    British (lies): "we are heree to help you arabs in getting rid of the occupation by the turks/ottomans so you can be free" turns to divying up the mideast with French using borders they picked, decades of occupation of the mideast, and the installation of dictators and kings.

    US (hypocricy): "we are a beacon of light, we stand for rights and freedoms, others are brutal and evil. saddam tortured people so he's bad." we find out that US soldiers arre torturing prisoners, (they are just a few bad apples!), then a US policy to torture shows up (these are enhanced interrogation techniiques, not torture, promise!)

    Israeli (deception): "its true that we have been uprooting entire palestinian farms, demolishing palestinian homes, only providing building permits to jews, blockinging the return of palestinian refugees who fled when we took this land by force, illegally expanding into occupied territory, our citizens yell death to arabs, placing an embargo on things as innocent as crayons, harrassing palestinians at every checkpoint, imprisoning kids for throwing rocks, shooting at palestinian protestors, protecting jews who harass palestinians and vandalize palestinian property BUT no there is no program or aim of getting rid of as many palestinians as possible. we have reasons for each of these things. the fact they seem to point to one thing is just a coincidence.

      It shows that you are stupid, George stupid Bush ordered the spying programm but you want Obama to take responsibility for what he did not do but was set 8 years before he was president. It is idiot like you that will always be blaming Obama for all the evils of GOP, so move over and shut up

        At what point does Obama become responsible? He is president he has control over this even though he didn't start it he dang sure could end it whenever he liked but, he made the decision not to. So he just as guilty or even more then Bush.
