NSA Surveillance Program Failed
to Invade Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Privacy

Daily Beast, by Michael Daly

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/12/2013 5:35:04 AM

One person whose privacy was not invaded by U.S. intelligence was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as he repeatedly visited the al Qaeda online magazine Inspire for its recipe “Build a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.” Even after Russian intelligence asked the FBI to investigate Tsarnaev, the huge databases our intelligence services maintain in the name of our national security failed to alert the agents to Tsarnaev’s interest in building the pressure cooker bombs he would use to devastating effect at the Boston Marathon. In the immediate aftermath of the Boston bombings, investigators did not fail to note similarities

Immediately after his inauguration, Barack Obama´s Department of Homeland Security nominees wrote a report naming conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians and TEA Party members as "domestic terrorists."

Of course they weren´t looking for Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He actually posed a real threat to America. Far more fun to pretend that people asking for limited, Constitutional government pose a threat to our Republic.

If detesting Obama and everything he stands for makes me more dangerous than a Muslim extremist visiting bomb making sites than by all means put my picture up in the Post Office.

#1 hit the nail on the head. When O and the Demean say "terrorists" or "enemies" they aren´t talking about Islamists.

They´re talking about "us".

The NSA is wasting billions of dollars and countless man hours chasing down phantom enemies. Hannity had coupe former NSA whistle blowers on yesterday and they had a very effective and cost effective system of IDing terrorists and they were thrown out by NSA bigwigs who replaced their system with a new billion dollar system which then switched to spying on Americans morseso than anybody.

They didn´t catch the boston bombers because their filters ignored them due to heritage.

These other guys claim their system could have prevented 911 because it connected the dots on the terrorist´s travels.

This all probably comes down to a super fat governmnet contract and insider cronyism.

I think it is pretty evident who obama considers the enemy (it is us)and who he is attacking (again, it is us). There are no resources left to protect us from the enemy. Heck, even our congress is getting ready to "welcome" in a large bunch of law breakers....with benefits!

The HSD, NSA, CIA, TSA, and FBI haven´t been all that effective in preventing terror. Let´s throw in the US ARMY too since they neglected to recognize the ticking time bomb that was Nidal Hassan. The common thread that runs through all these agencies is their inability to recognize that Muslims could pose a threat. They are too busy harassing good America loving patriots to be bothered with any practitioner of the religion of peace. When you are so willfully stubborn that you will risk the lives of fellow Americans in order to not offend a Muslim, you have put us all at risk. Muslims play the victim role perfectly and use it against us very effectively. Our government is at best a world class chump and at worst an enabler. Either way, Americans are getting killed on their watch. Take the blinders off and see what is right there in front of your face then you may be more successful in stopping terror attacks. You cannot stop the enemy if you insist upon protecting them.

This is simple. Gathering ´EVERYONES´ records, emails, phone calls etc. yields so much data they can´t possibly sift through it.

HOWEVER, if they did what they were SUPPOSED TO DO and gather all the info on potential enemies, i.e. Muslims and other hate groups, it would have been simple.

SO it goes, our govt. thugs fail to do their job because some political hack, no matter how high in position dictates the policy to slam their perceived enemies.

Now, the only question is, WHO goes to Jail?

This is an Marxist Administration that only answers to itself. So why does any sensible citizen think that Obama and the rest of his spying and lying dictatorship will pay any attention to a SCOTUS decision telling them to stop. The won´t, they will deny, deny and deny and continue on the road to chaos.

The Constitution is only an obstacle to them.

We have to do all the little stuff first. That ischeckingIDs at theairport. Everyone has to have a legitimate real govt photo ID. No exceptions. The Christmas bomber was talked onto the flight with NO ID at all. "Oh, he is a somali -they have no govt there . Let him on" The gate agent said on but the supervisor issued the bording pass.
Also, the TSA should be required to have 2
employees fly on every flight that those 2 screen.Then if that flight goes down, their
fellow TSA-ers can find out who passed thru the bomber and even the score.IMO, but it will stop all this sympathy for the terrorists if there is any.
If we do these boring, basic things then we won´t need these Jumbo programs.

Just as everyone at the airport must be inconvenienced so as not to engage in logical profiling, everyone´s mail must be scanned, phone records collected, emails grabbed--for now overwhelming the detective ability of the an insufficient number of collectors, and when their numbers are increased slowly subjecting the rest of us to a police state.

Like #5 I saw one of the NSA Whistleblowers on Megyn Kelly´s show who said the information gathered could be tailored to track only foreign terrorists (which was the purpose of the Patriot Act) and he was fired. 0bama wants to bring down this country because it is the only free nation on the earth standing in his way of Agenda 21 and the United Nations making decisions for the entire world. I know, I´ll now take off my tin foil hat. Anyone who doesn´t believe 0bama has evil, nefarious intentions for our country is delusional. His background is hidden because it would support this assumption.

The NSA and FBI have two total fails that we know about. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Nidal Hasan. Both were well known to authorities but both were left alone while Granny was being molested at the airport. The FBI was investigating terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki and knew he was corresponding with Hasan yet did nothing. According to Andrew McCarthy´s book "The Grand Jihad", the FBI did not even share that information with the Army.

As for Tsarnaev, even with a heads up from Russia he was also left alone. Can´t afford to upset CAIR you know. #10 says it very well: When you are so willfully stubborn that you will risk the lives of fellow Americans in order to not offend a Muslim, you have put us all at risk.

The sub-title of McCarthy´s book, "How Islam and the Left Sabotage America." Sabotage. The word applies here and we are all at risk.

The Obama administration motto is never let a crisis go to waste. His govt provides no protection from the likes of Tamerlan Tsarnaev and when he attacks you increase surveillance on everyone. Obama regards the citizens as the enemy while bowing to the real enemy. The real enemies attacks provide the pretext to set up even more surveillance of the citizen population shredding the 4th amendment.

# 27 makes the valid point completely overlooked by Republicans that are defending the program.
Was information gathered used for personal, political or blackmail purposes ?
That pattern has already been established by the Obama Administration and it´s a logical assumption.
Anyone who gives Obama and his henchmen carte blanche to invade the privacy of
every law abiding American is a fool.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says.

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
