A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Are You Really Surprised…

bush-hayden-large.jpgby the latest Media inspired story? Here’s how the latest firestorm began:

The National Security Agency has been secretly collecting the phone call records of tens of millions of Americans, using data provided by AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth, people with direct knowledge of the arrangement told USA TODAY.

The NSA program reaches into homes and businesses across the nation by amassing information about the calls of ordinary Americans — most of whom aren’t suspected of any crime. This program does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations. But the spy agency is using the data to analyze calling patterns in an effort to detect terrorist activity, sources said in separate interviews.

“Using the data to analyze calling patterns.”

Another way of saying that is…oh I hate this over used phrase so much…

Connecting the dots.

I said it.

Isn’t that what the NSA is SUPPOSED to do?

Now, one more thing.

Does anyone, find it coincidental that the current chief of the NSA was nominated to head the CIA yesterday, and this story comes out today?

    Wait till the announcement next Friday of Roves indicment, a day after Haydens hearings start. That’ll look real suspicous.(feel free to laugh and point if it doesn’t happen)
