John Brennan crawls out from his spider hole to announce "Be Scared! Be Very Scared!"

Terrorists who want to attack the U.S. are closely monitoring the congressional battle over the Patriot Act with hopes of finding ways to strike, the head of the CIA said on Sunday.

“I think terrorist elements have watched very carefully what has happened here in the United States,” Director John Brennan said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“Whether or not it’s disclosures of classified information, or whether it’s changes in the law and policies, they’re looking for the seams to operate within,” he added. “This is something that we can’t afford to deal with right now, because if you look at the horrific terrorist attacks and violence that’s being perpetrated around the globe, we need to keep our country safe.”

Brennan’s comments are the latest pressure from the Obama administration, which has been frantically warning Congress not to run through the midnight deadline to renew three parts of the Patriot Act. The administration has repeatedly urged lawmakers to pass the USA Freedom Act, which would renew those laws while also ending the National Security Agency’s (NSA) bulk collection of Americans’ phone records.

3. they've learned well from their banana-republic client states: next they'll be saying that all and

any negative news is part of "a vast Soviet-orchestrated misinformation campaign" that controls every newsdesk in the US. and every TV station. and every academy. and church. and party. and bake-sale committee

7. The CIA is funny when they pretend to care about American security.

 

They care about spying and lying. Mostly spying. How much of that is good or bad, only the CIA knows for sure. It would be foolish to pretend they are an organization that does pure good for America.
