ALL US communications were captured. Everything, Internet, phone, fax and wireless data.

Arrest them now.

11. We all knew this was going on
No surprise here.

The timing re Spitzer was the last piece of the puzzle. His Op Ed was published and they gobbled him up. He should never have resigned. Vitter is still in the Senate.

18. What? I feel like I have stepped into the middle of an intense conversation
and have no idea of what is going on. Would it be possible to explain in a couple sentences? Thanks.

26. LOLOL!
:rofl:

Oh man, that was funny!!! :spray:

I had no idea what TIA stood for either. I only absorb about 75% of what is written; the rest is in some code language I don't understand.

27. Thank you, that makes more sense. Appreciate it.
was confused because there (was?) a Duer by the name TIA or some such and was just confused. Thanks.

So, good. Whistle blowers coming forward. Good. Even though bushco is out, it is still a good and brave thing to do. Nice to know I'm not just paranoid also, or perhaps not.

28. no problem, glad I could help
I remember a poster here also, and understand the confusion. There are probably hundreds of threads from years ago about TIA, I recall quite the uproar about it at the time, about the logo, and everything else associated with it.

It is telling that I had to go through 3 or 4 pages of google to find it, and only came away with a cartoon. I am not surprised at all, but as others have said, it is very jarring to have it confirmed. To say I am glad the whistle blowers are coming is the understatement of the decade.

19. Not really surprised, but the confirmation hit me hard.
I take my right to privacy very seriously and the fucking Bush NSA stole it from me.

Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 09:54 PM by greyhound1966
and have been doing it. There is only one battle, the parasites vs. us.

"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks."

"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely" - Lord Acton

Edit second quote just in case

22. There is no option here. Investigation has to happen. And if there is investigation,
prosecution must follow. The only way out of that is blanket pardons.
