Just another day in the Badministration

National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell
Q: So you’re saying that the reporting and the debate in Congress means that some Americans are going to die?
McCONNELL: That’s what I mean. Because we have made it so public. We used to do these things very differently
Despite forewarning of the death of Americans, McConnell freely “pulled the curtain back” on previously declassified information about surveillance in the interview. Explaining details ranging from secret court rulings to information on obtaining wiretapping warrants
Court ruling declared Bush’s program illegal on May 31
“Under the president’s program, the terrorist surveillance program, the private sector had assisted us,” said McConnell.
McConnell is arguing for legal immunity for the companies when Congress returns from recess.
fewer than 100 people inside the United States are monitored under FISA warrants
thousands of people overseas are monitored,”
“My argument was that the intelligence community should not be restricted. … It takes about 200 man hours to do one telephone number.”

McConnell also preempted the question of White House involvement:
“The president’s guidance to me early in the process, was,
‘You’ve got the experience. I trust your judgement.
You make the right call. There’s no pressure from anybody here,”
Things that makes you go hmmm?

If it truly were a war on terror they'd arrest the KKK.
