Congressional intelligence chairmen applaud Obama for backing surveillance

Feinstein said the critics of the NSA’s surveillance programs underestimate how many people around the world see the United States as their enemy. “A lot of the privacy people perhaps don't understand that we still occupy the role of the Great Satan. New bombs are being devised. New terrorists are emerging, new groups, actually, a new level of viciousness,” the California Democrat said. “We need to be prepared. I think we need to do it in a way that respects people's privacy rights.”
Feinstein also contended that U.S. companies collect more data on Americans that the NSA does. “When you look at what companies collect, the government does not seem to be a major offender at all,” she said.

Yeah and this is coming from the same Diane Frankenstein that still wants to destroy the 2nd amendment , the bitch  boasts about how long she has been a senator , yeah that's the problem, somebody fire this old bitch because its been long overdue.
The notion that we must choose between abiding by the Constitution and improving security is fundamentally false, as Obama noted when first campaigning for the presidency. But his recent response was a flip flop exploiting people's fear of terrorism to say he cannot ensure their "100% security" unless people give up their privacy and convenience to allow the massive NSA monitoring. A lot more than privacy and convenience is at stake.
What is at risk here is simply the rule of law, whose keystone is the concept of due process, as derived from the Magna Carta and enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Once due process goes, we can wave goodbye also to freedom of speech, freedom of press and freedom of assembly.
