More shocking than the extensive information gathering on innocent Americans is this revealing information from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
From the Washington Post:
“Do you think a program of this magnitude gathering information involving a large number of people involved with telephone companies could be indefinitely kept secret from the American people?” Goodlatte asked.
“Well,” ODNI general counsel Robert S. Litt said with a slight smile, “we tried.”
We tried? His only regret is that they TRIED to keep the extensive, rights violating data gathering a secret, but failed?
Government is so big they don’t even know right from wrong anymore, and the Constitution? Well, its become near irrelevant to those in power. That should concern you.
