Thread: Sessions urging permanent reauthorization of FISA spying

    Sessions urging permanent reauthorization of FISA spying

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats wrote to leaders of Congress Monday urging them to permanently reauthorize a law that allows for the surveillance of digital communications of foreigners located outside the U.S.
    Section 702 allows authorities to collect and review emails and other communications of foreigners who are located outside the United States, but Americans communications can be swept up in surveillance as well if they are communicating with a target of an investigation.

    But privacy and civil liberties advocates have argued for reforms to further protect American’s since the existence of some of the National Security Agency’s spying programs were revealed through leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

    Mr. Sessions and Mr. Coats said their agencies conduct “extensive oversight reviews” of Section 702 activities.

    WTF is it with these ass holes
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    A better question might be WTF is with these ass holes who vote for ass holes who then appoint ass holes to do ass hole-ish things?

    These kinds of things don't just happen spontaneously. There is a direct cause and effect.

    Seems to me this is precisely what electoral results have told these reptilian politicians we are looking for.

    We need a complete rebuild of the Congress of the United States.
    Anyone there for over 20 years need to be tossed out on their ear.

    Don't assume it's just the people who vote opposite you who are the problem.
