Skip to comments.NSA snooping has foiled multiple terror plots: Feinstein (Sealing the borders work much better)

A secret National Security Agency program to collect vast amounts of phone records has foiled multiple attempted terrorist attacks inside the United States, the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee told reporters on Thursday.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein did not specify how many attempted attacks had been prevented, or the nature of the threats, but the California Democrat said there had been more than one.
The remarks were made to reporters following a meeting with senators who were concerned over a report in a British newspaper that the NSA had requested phone records from a division of telecommunications giant Verizon. According to Feinstein, 27 senators attended the meeting and voiced concerns about the policy.

Yeah, like the terrorist plot to elect Mitt Romney President of the United States.
I thought the war over? Heck didn’t they say this snooping isn’t happening.
How about NOT LETTING PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KILL US ENTER OUR COUNTRY? And how about DEPORTING THE ONES WHO ARE HERE?
So if they are indeed tracking everything on the internet then they very well could have used that access during the election.
the democrats see no irony in setting up massive powers to mine data (aka “spy”) on 370 million Americans versus waterboarding 3 terrorists
Make her define “terrorist”. Did she stop a Christian , who wanted to pray at High School graduation? Is that what she means. Did she stop a conservative from voting?
Is that what she means?
Why physically IMPORT them and then expensively DEFEND on an open-ended, ad-hoc basis...?
Sorry but with no shred of sanity at the immigration booth, then there is NO SUCH THING as a “War on Terror”.
Just look at Stockholm, England, and France. And others.
Makes MUCH more sense to keep the f*ckers out at the outset.
I’m not sure what’s scarier - them collecting the information or a sociopath like Feinstein having access to it.
Sealing our borders and controlling immigration would be far more cost effective too.
Not to mention, it wouldn’t shred the constitution.
Sure it did; under Bush when they were looking for calls to and from number known to be associated with terrorist leaders overseas!
With this bunch though you have to substitute “terrorist” with “tea party”.
Remember THIS about Feinstein:
She was great buddies with Jim Jones, the guy who literally came up with “Drinking the KOOL AID” down in Guyana.
She was also the one who most aggressively cross-examined the victims of Ruby Ridge, where the FBI shot a mother holding a baby in her arms.
Her husband is a lawyer for the People’s Republic of China.
She lives in a palace in the swankiest part of SF, perched on a hill overlooking Fisherman’s Wharf.
How can this be..I have been told repeatedly from Messiah Obama there is no more “War on Terror” terrorism has been eradicated..yet he needs to get phone records of average Americans..meanwhile, you have the Russians repeatedly warning us about Tsarnaev and they didnt do a damn thing to stop it..this has NOTHING to do with stopping terrorists, this has everything to do with getting as much info on Americans so they can transfer that info to leftist groups when necessary
Didn’t she also release info about a serial killer the police wanted to keep quiet? Went on the news and announce that they knew what kind of shoes he was wearing so he ditched the shoes and killed at least one more victim.

Simple answer: he thinks we (traditional, patriotic American citizens) are the terrorists.
Which - it might be worth pointing out - is exactly how the typical member of the muslim brotherhood thinks of us.
Next, they’ll say open borders are just a clever plan to lure terrorists into the country, and to nab them using secret surveillance.
She better find out fast and publish. The citizens are enraged at the government screwing with people while enemies are encouraged and funded by the Obama Administration. We have had enough./
As if this traitorous b#### would care about foiling terrorist plots that kill us “little people.” /spit
Even if you believe them (and I don’t) with this kind of justification there is nothing they can not (and mostly are doing)
