Arizona’s view of religious freedom

It must be boring in Arizona.

The Legislature in Arizona has apparently nothing more important to do than discuss and pass a bill (House Bill 2153) messing with religious freedom. In a nutshell, it would allow individuals Рand businesses -  to use religious beliefs to defend against lawsuits. Continue reading

Government Shutdown, Tea Party and National Security

Today’s Government shutdown without question hurts everything, starting with the government workers who may not get a paycheck or get it delayed to sometime in the distant future, to the economy – with the federal government to biggest employer in the country, and of course the U.S.’s reputation all over the world. There have been suggestions that “U.S.A” stands for “United States of Absurdistan”. Continue reading

Why Obama administration does not call it a coup

It is getting worse every day in Egypt, ever since the military ousted President Mursi – a democratically elected President after all.

US embassy closures used to bolster case for NSA surveillance programs

Over the weekend U.S. embassies in more than 20 countries across North Africa and the Middle East were closed due to increased chatter in the terrorists network.

Republican senator Saxby Chambliss said the NSA had identified threats that were the most serious for years and akin to levels of “terrorist chatter” picked up before 9/11.

Really?

We thought the terrorists are now able to avoid NSA tracking, after Edward Snowden revealed what the NSA is doing. If they are, how would the NSA know about it?

It is of course possible the terrorists know it and use it to their advantage to give the U.S. false leads.

That is called counter-intelligence.

By the way, the Benghazi attacks last year were not anticipated (as far as we know), even though it happened on the 9/11 anniversary. Is it possible the terrorists knew how to avoid the NSA, even before Snowden leaked the secret programs?

It could also simply that the terrorists are saying: let’s scare the U.S. and spread some rumors. They actually don’t need to do anything besides the talking.

Very cost efficient.

But then it is also possible that the NSA made it all up. Their interest is to to nourish the culture of fear – and keep the money flowing.

The surveillance program – especially the collection of phone records from every American, came under scrutiny from Congress (can you believe it). Indeed, it is unlikely that it played any role in the al-Qaida intercepts.

The members of the Intelligence Committee in Congress should be able to to tell about it – oh we forgot they are prohibited by law.

An ordinary member can’t get such information, so much for congressional oversight – but then they don’t get that much cash from the defense and surveillance industry¬† as the IC members do.

We have, however, one question, that the above referenced article does not mention: if regular members are supposed to approve the funding for these programs, why are they voting YES if they can’t get information what it is used for?

It is more likely, though, that the IC members aren’t told everything either. Clapper admitted he is lying to Congress – and stands by his decision to lie.

At the end we can’t believe anything they’re saying.

Our headline could also read:

“NSA causes US embassy closures in order to bolster surveillance programs”

Which is closer to the truth? You’d be the judge. The NSA won’t tell you.
