NSA Analysts Spied on Their Wives and Girlfriends' Email
Despite assurances from the very respectable and unquestionable team of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, it turns out that the NSA did abuse its power on Americans, in fact, on their dear loved ones:
James Risen, the reporter who first broke the NSA wiretapping story, told MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann that NSA analysts have been spying on the email accounts of wives and girlfriends.
“It sounded like, from the former NSA analyst that we interviewed, that it was rare to access the emails of celebrities or famous people,” Risen stated, “but that it was fairly routine, according to him, for people to access the emails of girlfriends or wives or other people that they might know.”
Interestingly, there has been no outcry from the predominantly white right wing groups or Fox News commentators like Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck on this egregious violation of big government. No cries of socialism or fascism; apparently that is reserved only for the Black President.
