NSA in the Crosshairs--An Unconventional Liberal Position
Those who debate the minutiae of US National Security spying policy seem to in their luxury life not have a significant understanding of what the threats to this nation are or really remember the details of the 9/11 attack. They do not know how serious this is. They are willing to compromise the security of this nation for due process Constitutional clauses. No one has thought the pillars of our republic more important than I. BUT while they are important they are NOT everything in comparison to the threat. One difference between our Founding Fathers in 1776 and the modern era is found in one word: nukes.
There are those who do not have a clue about what that means. One should Youtube something about the effects of those incomprehensible weapons in the hands of those who want to destroy this country before one tries to weaken the US government compromising this nation and all of our lives within it!
A final thought: Those journalists like Glenn Greenwald, excellent writer and expert civil libertarian that he is, freely spout whatever they want, whenever they want to whomever they want and are still writing their columns. They are NOT sitting in jail with the key thrown away. They are gaining fame and notoriety while making a big capitalist buck off it. I rest my case.
