The Director of National Intelligence has admitted that, in hindsight, the US intelligence community would have been smarter to disclose some details about how telephone records belonging to millions of Americans have been collected for years.
Perhaps more than any other Obama administration official, James Clapper has been the target of the most criticism, sarcasm, and outright fury since Edward Snowden leaked a trove of classified National Security Agency documents. He has staunchly defended the government’s interpretation of section 215 of the Patriot Act, under which it argues that secret collection of phone data is legal.
Now, in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, Clapper appears to have admitted that many of the problems currently plaguing intelligence community are self-inflicted and could have been avoided.
“I probably shouldn’t say this, but I will,” Clapper said Monday. “Had we been transparent about this from the outset right after 9/11 – which is the genesis of the 215 program – and said both to the American people and to their elected representatives, we need to cover this gap, we need to make sure this never happens to us again, so here is what we are going to set up, here is how it’s going to work, and why we have to do it, and here are the safeguards…We wouldn’t have had the problem we had.” …
The liar can’t stop lying. The NSA’s illegal domestic operation started months before 9/11:
In fact ALL this domestic subversion and treason started before 9/11:
Because 9/11 was just the public rollout of a pre-existing agenda of mass theft and treason:
It appears that the nuclear false flag that was to take place in south carolina, http://www.infowars.com/top-nuke-commanders-fired-following-missing-nuclear-warheads-report/ which senator Lindsey Graham helped set the stage for, was meant to provide the pretext for martial law and an attack on syria. The alarming context of all this is the 2-decade-long deliberate destruction of the economy. It appears we the people have become redundant. My guess is that the bankster’s plans require that the american people be exterminated in large numbers to facilitate the theft of the continent while tricking the US military to help steal the rest of the world.
The old world odor is getting rancid. Clearly, it’s time for some spring cleaning.
