Response to Catherina (Original post)

6. I have read the entire transcript. Everyone who cares about this country should read it.

Our Constitutional Rights are in the hands of, mostly populated by Bush people, Private Security Corporations whose main motivation is PROFIT. They are NOT, as Pyle points out, responsible for protecting our rights. Congress has passed that responsibility to them with no obligation to defend the Constitutional Rights of American citizens.

Do people really grasp the incredible danger of this?

Then, to make matters worse, they go from these Private Corps who need contracts to stay in business, contracts voted for by Congress, right into Government. Eg, Clapper, a Repubican, former and probably future employee of Booz Allen, is now DIRECTOR OF INTELLIGENCE. Surely the conflict of interest is apparent to even the most blind partisan? Speaking of which, he's a Republican and a Bush guy, so why is ANY democrat defending this person who has lied to Congress already before we even begin??

And why is someone like this still in our government. Are there no Democrats this administration can find for these positions?

I do not support Republicans. This forum forbids anyone supporting Republicans. How can this be rationalized then? DUers supporting a lying Republican??

As for this from the General:

There is no doubt in my mind that we will lose capabilities as a result of this and that not only the United States, but those allies that we have helped,


He better start reading what our 'allies' have to say about THEIR ally spying on them too. But he blames the messenger, rather than explain WHY they are spying on Europeans and Americans. Is there no IQ required to be in these positions? If they were not spying on their allies and the American people, Snowden would have nothing to report.

If you commit a crime and someone reports you, is the person who reports to blame for the crime? THIS is the logic we get from our top officials these days.
