30. This is desperation

He's repackaging and conflating already reported claims to give the impression that there is something new here.

Secret program launched by Bush continued 'until 2011'
Fisa court renewed collection order every 90 days
Current NSA programs still mine US internet metadata

The 90-day order was reported initially.

This from his current piece claims that the program ended, which would make the initial claim that it was ongoing false.

The documents indicate that under the program, launched in 2001, a federal judge sitting on the secret surveillance panel called the Fisa court would approve a bulk collection order for internet metadata "every 90 days". A senior administration official confirmed the program, stating that it ended in 2011.

Conflating the metadata program with Stellar Wind, Bush's illegal eavesdropping program, is curious.

Remember whistleblower Thomas Tamm?
