Breaking: NSA Eavesdropped on People Whom They Had Personal Grudges (Audio)
Gateway Pundit ^ | June 7, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Renee Montagne from NPR spoke with liberal columnist and author Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who co-wrote the stories for the British newspaper The Guardian, today on the massive data-mining scandal.

Greenwald dropped this bomb during the interview.

“There are reported examples of the NSA, analysts at the NSA, using mechanisms they have access to. ABC reported several years ago through whistle blowers that they have used it to eavesdrop on people on whom they have personal grudges. There are isolated examples of the Patriot Act being abused. The problem is that the entire system operates behind a wall of extreme secrecy.”

Here’s Greenwald on NPR this morning:

(AUDIO-AT-LINK)

But surely the Obama administration would not eavesdrop on political opponents.

Right?

“So THAT’S why McCain and Lindsay Graham vote like idiots. The NSA are listening.”

That is the winning answer of the day

No, McCain and Graham are just liberal idiots in RINO clothing.

Is anyone surprised by this? Anyone at all? Give someone power and secrecy and they’ll eventually abuse it.

Believe what you want to believe.

I personally believe they’re either on the take or blackmailed.

This is similar to the 900+ files of political enemies that Clinton had in the WH.

Of the two choices you present, I’ll choose “on the take.” But then I’m of the belief they’re all crooked, corrupt bastards anyway.

I just wonder how much of their snooping led to IRS audits.

There is a reason why government should be limited, and the power government employees have should be limited, and it doesn’t matter how professional the employees are. Power corrupts.

Give someone power and secrecy and they’ll eventually abuse it.

And give a Chicago pol some power and secrecy and he'll use it before the sun goes down today.

Liberals are immature to begin. Immature people are petty and vengeful. Give them infinite ability to snoop on people and ruin their lives, and you have a pretty toxic brew going.

One gets the sense that the living God is about to click the refresh button on the great octopus that is the Federal Government.

Well, we know for sure that this surveillance on the American people had ZERO to do with fighting terrorism. If it had, then the Ft. Hood massacre would have been prevented. Surely, the NSA would have been monitoring phone conversations between Nidal Hasan and Anwar al-Awlaki. Unfortunately, the NSA wasn't looking for buzzwords like 'Jihad'. Nope, the buzzwords they were looking for were 'TEA Party', 'Second Amendment', and 'Freedom'.

I have to ask again: are we describing the Obama Administration or a banana republic?
