    Of course, Gen. Clapper, the DNI, denies everything, He is, after all, one very cool guy, so let’s look at some of the cool quotes from him.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_R._Clapper
    In 2003, Clapper, then head of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, attempted to explain the absence of WMDs in Iraq by asserting that the weapons materials were “unquestionably” shipped out of Iraq to Syria and other countries just before the American invasion, a “personal assessment” which Clapper’s own agency head at the time, David Burpee, “could not provide further evidence to support.”
    In March 2011, Clapper was heard at the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services and commented on the 2011 Libyan civil war saying that “over the longer term” Gaddafi “will prevail.”
    (Yup, must be another Obama appointee.)

      The hackitude of the intel agencies is embarrassingly bad. Virtually every inquiry gets a cringe-worthy lie as a response.

    It’s nice that RT has you on to talk to you. It would be better if they would give you more than a 3 or 4 minute segment for a change though. That interview just barely scratched the surface of this issue.

    Since we know the official 911 is a phony, we should understand that this massive surveillance is not about finding terrorists. The government has blocked all efforts at finding the perpetrators of 911 from 2001 on. Surveillance is meant to uncover sedition among the people, groups and movements that want to challenge the banking system, the FED, the Wall Street criminals. They want to subvert any movement that might take power away from the oligarchy and give it to the people. JFK, MLK, Robert Kennedy and a host of others have been snuffed out for the same reason. There are a million ways true terrorist could cause chaos and paralyze this country, but they don’t happen. A few well placed junk cars on the freeway at rush hour, for instance. LSD in the water supply, cutting phone lines and microwave towers. etc. any number of things.
